Corporate Lending & Leveraged Finance lawyers

As a lender or borrower, the increasing regulation of debt markets, combined with increasing sources of funding, poses challenges for your business. Lenders want to remain competitive without sacrificing contractual protections, while borrowers want to achieve the optimum balance of contractual flexibility and competitive pricing.

Our broad-based practice acting for many types of lenders and borrowers in the corporate and leveraged finance fields will ensure you meet these challenges. Our practice has been recognised by the Legal 500 as “commercial and responsive”, enabling us to deliver cost-effective advice that meets your timetables and requirements.

Clients come to us for advice on syndicated and bi-lateral loan documentation, syndicated and bi-lateral general corporate lending facilities, bespoke structured credit transactions, cross-border financings and security and loan portfolio sales and acquisitions.
