Our specialist team of real estate finance lawyers advises on how to structure financing, either to provide maximum security for you, as the lender, or maximum certainty as the borrower. We work with major banks and other leading property lenders, on a senior and mezzanine basis, as well as advising some of the industry’s highest profile property investment and development borrowers.
We have engaged with a new wave of real estate investors and funders who are emerging as key players in the property market. Consequently, we know how to look beyond the traditional areas of property finance and to embrace new technology in an ever-changing banking market.
We are well placed to both protect our clients’ businesses and to help them to capitalise on the opportunities that are available. We are only doing our job if we become a key component of a client’s team and play an active role in every aspect of a transaction. We are here to facilitate deals through the introduction of people, property and finance, and find practical commercial solutions to issues along the way. We are helped by our industry-wide experience of property finance: commercial, residential, leisure and healthcare.
We bring the same know-how to multi-jurisdictional finance transactions. This experience, allied to long-standing links with overseas practices, means we can meet the needs of an increasingly international client base.
Financial institutions, private equity funds, hedge funds, institutional funds, developers and investors rely on our advice across all aspects of transactions including:
- Bilateral, syndicated, club, structured, senior and mezzanine finance
- Bridging finance
- Debt restructurings and re-financings
- Creation and implementation of property funds
- Sale and leaseback structures
- Security enforcements and receiverships
In addition, our banking and finance teams are supported by strong corporate, funds, real estate, tax and regulatory offerings, resulting in a seamless client service.
