Our expertise

Increasingly we advise high net worth individuals in private equity investments including lending as the banks lose appetite or ability to lend in the current economic climate.

Our services include drafting security documentation for lenders (including private banks), advising on regulation for financial services products and drafting associated business agreements, setting up and structuring loan funds onshore and offshore, advising on private equity issues and documentation, and negotiating facility and transaction documents.

We advise on finance for commercial and residential property sales and acquisitions, and property development, drawing on our well established links with lenders, brokers and other relevant professionals.
