Acquisition Transaction Solicitors: Equity Investments & 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.

We often also advise on structures that use a mixture of debt and equity funding from both borrower and lender/investor sides of the transaction.

With offices in Leeds, Sheffield and York, our banking and finance solicitors can offer our acquisition and transaction finance services either on a face-to-face basis, by post or by email. Get in touch today by calling 0333 323 5292. Alternatively, you can fill in our enquiry form on this page and we will get back to you.
