Our team of specialist finance lawyers advise on how to structure financing to provide the best security for the lender or the maximum certainty for the borrower.
We use our cross-firm expertise in the Private and Art Law Departments when working for clients who wish to lend or borrow money secured on works of art, jewellery and classic cars. Our team of art law specialists are well versed in assisting parties on all sides of a transaction on aspects such as due diligence, ownership, value and conditions, ensuring assets have a solid valuation and evidence of authenticity and provenance. Our key contacts in the art market also assist in securing high coverage insurance and a relationship with any storage facility if required.
Our sports law team has a deep understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities that come with financing and acquiring sporting assets (including security that may include revenue stream) and a proven track record of success in helping clients secure funding and navigate complex legal issues. We act in a wide range of sports and can provide advice on key issues including financing against receivables from transfers, financial restructurings, rescue and insolvency arrangements.
We facilitate deals through the introduction of people and finance; and find practical commercial solutions to issues along the way.
