Commercially minded financial law solicitors

Our team of Banking and Finance Lawyers have years of experience working in this niche area of law.  We know exactly how this complex world works and can help you to achieve results on even the most complex of cases.

Not only do we possess an extensive understanding of this highly technical and constantly evolving area of law, but we are also commercially minded.

We understand that what may seem logical may not always achieve the best result for your business and work hard to ensure the most commercially advantageous outcome.

Banking and finance law

Banking and finance law covers representation of both lenders and borrowers in financial transactions, including due diligence.

Our banking and finance legal services cover mergers and acquisitions, corporate organisational and ownership issues involving holding companies, banks, and other regulated entities.

In addition, we regularly assist our clients with responses to regulatory examinations, possessing specialised capabilities for addressing litigation common to banks, such as class action litigation under consumer financial protection laws.

Facility agreements

Loan agreements typically include the conditions that must be satisfied before funds are released, the interest payable, when and how the loan will be repaid, and how the lender will be protected in the event of default.

We have a great deal of experience of structuring, negotiating and drafting loan facility agreements to suit the unique circumstances of the transaction for all those involved.

We pride ourselves on delivering expert guidance to lenders and borrowers of all sizes, ensuring a mutually beneficial outcome.

Acquisition and asset funding

As well as debt funding and bank borrowing, we also have expertise in advising clients on equity investments, where investors take a stake in a company in exchange for their funding.

Each of our diverse range of clients relies on us to identify the best financing vehicle and negotiate the terms to help achieve short and long-term commercial objectives.


Banking and finance disputes can become incredibly complex incredibly quickly. Our specialist team of banking and finance dispute resolution solicitors have extensive knowledge and experience in this heavily regulatory environment.

We work closely with all our clients to ensure we achieve the best-possible results. In each case, we provide strategic advice designed to resolve disputes as early in the process as possible, enabling you to avoid lengthy, drawn-out legal processes and focus on moving forward.

On the occasions early resolution is not possible, we will develop a complete strategic road map for resolution of the dispute with the minimum of fuss.
