Banking and Finance

Our banking law team has extensive experience acting for banks, businesses and individuals.  We understand the absolute necessity of ensuring the foundations of your banking transactions are set properly the first time around; when dealing with financial matters ‘close enough’ is not good enough.

We fully understand the ins and outs of transactional banking, and the commercial realities for both parties who want to make a deal work.  We also know about the specialised internal world of corporate banking, and the setting up and administration of financial service providers and advisors.

Our experienced banking and finance team provides specialist advice in a timely and cost effective way to local, national and international lenders, from those providing one off financing, to mezzanine lenders, to registered banks.  Our borrower clients come in all sizes and with a wide range of transactions and requirements such as property and project finance, equipment and working capital finance.  Many transactions are unique:  we know that with banking and finance there is often no one size fits all answer and a solution tailored to the client and the transaction may be required.

Working for both lenders and borrowers as regularly as we do gives us an insight into the motivations and desired outcomes for both sides of the transaction.  This enables us to provide you with truly specialist advice and guidance.

We also have specialist experience in the areas of enforcement, recovery and restructuring, providing advice to recognised receivers, liquidators and financial institutions.  Having a practical understanding of how the recovery process works means we can help construct practical solutions, often with negotiated workable outcomes.

Knowing our clients, knowing how their businesses work, and knowing the matters that are of real, practical importance to them is fundamental to the way we work.

Our aim is always to work with you, to ensure you achieve the outcome you need to make your business, transaction, project or finance product work, you fully understand the process and the outcome (whether as a lender or as a borrower) and you are fully protected and informed.

This approach is what makes us a multi-award winning team and a trusted adviser.
