Reputation for Handling the Largest, Most Complex, Multi-jurisdictional Mandates - our banking & leveraged finance team focuses on the top end of the market advising the full range of lenders and borrowers in big-ticket and complex financings across Europe and globally. Finance continues to be a cornerstone practice for our London office and the firm as a whole, built around servicing the world’s leading lenders and sophisticated borrowers on their high stake and complex transactions. The vast majority of the mandates we handle are cross-border, involve innovation or our unique UK/US capabilities (e.g. straddling English and NY law or loan and bond formats) which include Top Tier bank finance teams on both sides of the Atlantic. We just advised 6 leading investment banks on the largest European buy out financing since 2007.
Strong Lender and Borrower Side Practice - over the past year, our work for some of the world’s leading financial institutions – Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Crédit Suisse, Deutsche, HSBC, KKR Credit and many more – demonstrates very clearly how we are trusted adviser to the leaders in European lending. This is thanks to our ability to combine our global-leading UK/US and cross-border bank finance experience, adapting each deal structure to the changing needs of the client. In addition to our extensive representation of leading global lenders, we are increasingly viewed as a go-to adviser by global corporate entities with substantial operations in Europe.
