Commercially minded finance advice

Global financial markets change with market dynamics, yet our job remains to help you realize your finance and investment strategies regardless of the current landscape. Our lawyers track new laws, market conditions, and financial products. We balance this with local, legal insight and sector-focused commercial sense to protect your interests in full.

Companies, financial institutions, and investment managers turn to us for their critical finance transactions. These range from investment vehicle formation, across the entire fund value chain, leveraged finance, securitization and structured finance projects to debt capital markets transactions and project finance.

We also advise on distress situations across all of these types of transactions.  What we do is often big-ticket and cross border, bringing challenges depending on your sector and the jurisdictions involved. 

We do everything to help you achieve your finance goals, whether you’re an asset manager, a fund sponsor, investor, lender or borrower. 

 

“I wouldn’t use anyone else – they are really easy to work with. They know which battles to contest and what is easily conceded whilst always having our interests at the forefront.”
