Banking & Financial Services

Working with some of the UK’s largest financial institutions, ensures our team offers unrivalled expertise with high level knowledge of the issues affecting the sector and the businesses operating within it.

Our clients operate in highly regulated and complex business environments. They require our lawyers to deliver legal advice, even in commodity areas, that is nuanced and reflective of the unique characteristics and needs of each client.

The work we undertake for banks and other financial institutions covers all aspects of banking practice - facility letters, loan agreements, security documents, priority deeds, inter-creditor agreements and subordination documents, as well as regulatory and documentary projects, insolvency and turnaround advice and banking litigation.

We also act for borrowers, including businesses and public and private institutions, advising on all aspects of their funding requirements.

We know what we are doing, we transact matters swiftly and commercially – we don’t get bogged down on unnecessary points. We are structured to provide a volume service when required and a bespoke service when required.

Experience and expertise means we speak your language.  Our advice allows clients to be fully protected and the borrowers we act for are aware of their obligations and liabilities. We’ll support you at all stages with straightforward, insightful and commercial advice.
