Banking & Finance

Working with businesses and lenders to secure the right finance or investment at the right time.

We work with a range of lenders and the businesses they finance, helping to negotiate and secure funding that meets lender expectations and delivers what the business needs to succeed.
We advise on the financing needs across the business lifecycle. That can be advising scaling business sourcing initial investments through growth capital facilities, a peer-to-peer platform or alternative lender, working with large commercial banks to refinance a business debt or working with businesses facing more challenging economic circumstances and helping them to restructure.  

We have extensive experience acting for lenders and borrowers across a range of sectors including technology, healthcare, energy & resource management, marine and commercial & residential development.
Our expertise covers both bilateral and syndicated lending for both UK and cross border transactions, in terms of acquisition finance; real estate finance; structured lending; asset, leveraged, project and trade finance, and invoice discounting. We frequently advise in respect of re-financings and debt structuring.  

No matter the size of the deal or financing required, we always aim to make a difference – being responsive, driving the matter forward and ensuring that any issues are raised immediately so that our clients can make the right decisions. 

Our experience working for lenders, borrowers and other professional advisers, and across the public and private sectors, gives us a good perspective on the likely issues and concerns that can arise on both sides, helping us to achieve a successful, speedier and commercial outcome whatever the business need.
