Experts in banking law

As specialists in banking law we can provide advice, whether you’re a lender or a business seeking finance to support your future growth plans.

  • Legal advice for lenders
    If you’re in the business of lending you’ll decide the amount of the business loan as well as the rates of interest before we’re involved. It’s our job to prepare the legal paperwork so that it protects you and allows you to successfully recover the loan without the threat of hidden surprises.
  • Financing your business
    Careful negotiation can make the difference between a workable finance option and one full of restrictive clauses. With us you’ll benefit from having a finance lawyer experienced in negotiation, as well as our well-established relationships with banks and lenders.
