Providing targeted finance advice to clients within our key sectors
Our sector focussed finance teams offer an integrated service that gives access to a wealth of knowledge and experience, with an understanding of our clients' specific sector needs.
In the wake of the recent financial crisis, those either seeking or giving financial support face new challenges. Whether restructuring existing agreements or financing new growth and development, an increasingly litigious financial environment is emerging.
We act for a wide range of corporate clients as well as banks, building societies, finance boutiques and other financial institution offering a wide variety of financial services. We deal with acquisitions, fundraisings, asset finance, investments, and financings throughout our key sectors which include trade & commodities, energy, infrastructure, insurance, marine and aviation.
Working as one team with colleagues in our international offices, located in both developed and emerging markets, we regularly advise on high-value, cross-border transactions where the issues are complex and varied and the structuring is crucial.
Incorporated within our finance team is a corporate recovery and insolvency team, giving focused and timely advice to both creditors and debtors and their expertise adds value at every stage of the process. Almost uniquely in this area, our finance team also includes a specialist banking litigation and arbitration team who have a leading reputation.
