Banking and finance
From Renault's takeover of the Lotus Formula 1 team to Hinduja Group’s £300m purchase of the Old War Office in London, we have been involved in some incredibly exciting deals.
Whether you are lending or borrowing, the depth of our technical knowledge and the breadth of our global reach, along with our work for some of the world’s wealthiest people, sets us apart.
Our banking and finance team’s experience covers all aspects of capital deployment.
This includes the acquisition, disposal and financing of assets and investments; restructuring and insolvency matters; and complex litigation (including fraud and cross-border asset tracing).
Speaking many languages and with over 160 partners working in 16 offices around Europe, the USA and Asia Pacific, the team can provide relevant advice across multiple legal disciplines, time zones and jurisdictions.
Over our long history of acting for successful individuals and families we have developed a strong private banking practice. We are particularly well placed to assist with real estate, art, aircraft and shipping finance. In Asia Pacific, our team managed one of the largest debt restructuring in Southeast Asia since the 1997 financial crisis for a well-respected Indonesian conglomerate. Other examples include our experience acting as lead deal counsel for Jiangsu Changjiang Electronics Technology (JCET) on its pre-conditional voluntary general offer for STATS ChipPAC. This transaction won the ALB SE Asia Law Awards 2016 Asset and Corporate Finance Deal of the Year and the Singapore Business Review Business Ranking Awards 2015 Deal of the Year.
Entrepreneurs and businesses frequently call on us when they are looking to arrange finance. Perhaps you are looking to acquire a competitor, or expand internationally. Our team will explain options and work with you to identify the best course of action.
We are the firm of choice for many high-profile creditors, such as banks, suppliers and venture capitalists to assist with lending transactions across a wide range of industries around the world. Clients we have acted for include State Bank of India, HSBC, Capital One, Barclays, Bank of China, Royal Bank of Canada and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as well as a number of other major Italian and Indian banks.
