What the team does
Our Banking and Finance team sits across London and Birmingham, with partners, directors, associates and trainees in both locations. It incorporates a number of sub-teams working on general corporate banking, asset finance, and restructuring and insolvency.
Our core banking and finance team advises across a number of practice areas including:
- Leveraged finance – we advise lenders, borrowers, infrastructure funds and private equity houses on the structuring and negotiation of a wide range of transactions across different sectors and jurisdictions.
- General corporate banking – we advise a wide range of corporates, banks, pension trustees and other organisations on their financing needs and facilities, including derivative and other specialist products.
The asset finance team undertakes a diverse mix of high quality work ranging from funding emergency generators to international helicopter leasing to financing marine vessels. Asset finance transactions often involve several different countries and we have to coordinate numerous parties around the world to deliver transactions on time. We also handle asset based lending and receivables finance work.
In the restructuring and insolvency team, we work for a variety of stakeholders, including banks, other lenders, insolvency practitioners, companies and their boards, protecting their varying interests when financial difficulties strike. The work is varied and we work across a broad range of sectors from coal mining to chocolate manufacturing.
