Corporate Banking Lawyers

Providing end-to-end solutions to corporate banking activity

Ensuring that loan agreements accurately record the terms between lenders and borrowers is crucial to ensuring that both parties know exactly the type of agreement they are entering into.

We ensure that lenders – including banks, invoice discounters, challenger banks, asset financiers and other funders – get the protections needed on the loans they offer, and the precise legal and commercial advice that will ensure that loan agreements and security are enforceable if needs be.

Our dynamic corporate banking team helps funders to continue to lend to viable businesses; helping to drive commerce across the county and internationally. Support includes negotiating loan agreements, drafting security documentation, as well as priority and intercreditor deeds.

For lenders to continue to operate successfully, seeking advice on the underlying transaction is also paramount, whether that be a corporate or real estate acquisition for example.

- Corporate banking activity requires advisers who are abreast of the many areas of finance that are available. From acquisition finance and mezzanine finance to related security and priority/subordination issues; our team have the specialist skills and commercial vision to ensure that you are met with solutions and not barriers

- Ensuring lenders are fully in the know when it comes to their corporate banking needs is a high priority in such a dynamic environment. We provide in-depth training for in-house teams on what to look out for on development transactions and share purchase agreements, as well as how to structure transactions and security documentation appropriately

- Having a sound understanding of longstanding market players, as well as new market entrants will directly impact on how corporate banking activity is conducted, both now and in the future. Day in and day out, our team are actively engaging with the full spectrum of incoming lenders including supporting other less traditional business funders, from peer-to-peer lenders, crowd funders and challenger banks
