Lawyers specialising in finance

Insightful advice on all types of financing is the core competency of our finance lawyers. They work closely with your project managers and in-house lawyers to develop solutions that are genuinely tailored to your needs.

In particular, we advise on acquisition and asset finance, project and real estate finance, structured finance and leasing. Our lawyers’ involvement in finance transactions begins with structuring and includes due diligence, term sheets, loan and collateral agreements, ongoing project coordination and – where necessary – restructuring. 

In a crisis situation, we provide legal support for our clients throughout the refinancing and restructuring process. We assist in selecting banks and with finance tendering, negotiate with debtors, banks and other creditors and provide insolvency advice on the acquisition and sale of assets and debt. 

As our client, you benefit from the experience of our finance lawyers across many key sectors. Examples include advising on finance for projects involving energy, infrastructure and real estate, as well as transport, logistics and the maritime industry.

How may we assist you with your finance project? Please feel free to contact our finance lawyers listed below at any time.
