Our Funds, Finance and Regulatory team provides comprehensive advisory and transactional services to lenders and borrowers.
Our lawyers are committed to understanding the regulatory environment in which our clients operate and the diverse range of financing structures now available.
We represent lenders, ensuring that their security and other requirements are satisfied, and support borrowers through the potentially daunting task of negotiating the lengthy documentation that has become market standard in this area.
Our team understands the need to secure the right financing package and to lay the platform for a successful ongoing relationship between borrowers and lenders. We adopt an enterprising, collaborative and cooperative approach to the negotiation process. Where problems do arise, our team can assist in the renegotiation or restructuring of debt, with a view to preserving the business and protecting shareholder value.
We act for new entrants to the financial services market, helping them to establish their new businesses and ensuring regulatory compliance. In the event our clients face regulatory investigations or similar challenges our team are well accustomed with supporting them through this complex process.
We have a significant focus on Islamic finance, advising clients on Shari’ah-compliant products, in particular commodity Murabaha and Ijara lease structures. Our team has extensive international experience, working with clients including domestic and foreign banks, investment firms and overseas companies.
