Banks play a vital role in facilitating transactions and projects.

We advise many of the leading banks and financial institutions, providing the full range of banking services from corporate lending to restructuring and recovery.

What do we do?

The advice we provide covers the wide range of the banking services that our clients provide to their customers, including:

  • structured/ leveraged finance;
  • acquisition finance;
  • real estate finance;
  • invoice discounting;
  • asset-based lending;
  • multi-bank syndications; and
  • bilateral transactions.

We draft, negotiate and advise on:

  • all types of facility agreements and security including legal charges, debentures, charges over shares, charges over accounts and deposits and assignment of policies, contracts, intellectual property rights, rent and other income sources; and
  • inter-creditor deeds, subordination/ postponement deeds and priority deeds.

We can support clients’ development of standard form loan and security documents.

The growing international reach of our business increasingly involves us in complex, cross-border transactions and we advise on Sharia compliant facilities as well as traditional debt structures.

The UK chapter of Legal 500’s Lending & Secured Finance guide was written by our expert banking and finance team. Published in 2024, this country-specific Q&A provides an overview of lending and secured finance laws and regulations applicable in United Kingdom.
