Banking & refinancing

Banking & refinancing

Whatever the market conditions for lenders and borrowers, it is vital that all parties are provided with robust, commercial and timely advice, backed by documentation tailored to best protect their interests.

As well as working closely with some of the UK's major banks and financial institutions, we are often the law firm of choice for borrowers and private equity investors.

This diversity helps us take a commercial approach to negotiations, so that our clients get the right result as quickly and as simply as possible.

We advise on domestic and multi-jurisdictional corporate financings, from short-term overdrafts to longer term revolving credit facilities, as well as refinancings and restructurings.

Our advice ranges from input at term sheet/mandate letter stage to documenting and completing refinancings and restructurings, and negotiating complex intercreditor arrangements.

A dedicated team of banking lawyers will provide you with top quality, pragmatic and commercial advice, and will actively drive each transaction forward.

You will find there is a real sense that our finance lawyers are on your side - which is why banks, funders, directors and shareholders like working with us, and why so many accountants and venture capitalists refer their clients to us.
