Our experience

Our Banking and Finance team have closed a variety of matters for lender and borrower clients in recent times. Some have involved heavily negotiated bespoke documentation, some have involved complex issues related to the financing structures involved and others have involved advice on "standard form" type documentation or "market" type documentation. Recent examples include:

  • Advising a lender client on a financing of the acquisition of a substantial portfolio of properties, including an investment finance facility and short-term VAT bridging facility.
  • Advising a borrower client operating in the technology sector on an acquisition finance facility providing for term and revolving loan facilities to assist it with its acquisition of another technology sector company.
  • Advising a borrower client on a multi-jurisdictional secured margin term loan facility from a major international bank.
  • Advising a lender client on a term loan facility provided to an international joint venture vehicle, including a restructuring of that loan facility and intercreditor arrangements between the client and the other joint venture party.
  • Advising borrower clients on proposed terms and structuring of credit facilities.
