Our team has an extensive range of expertise and provide comprehensive, practical and commercially minded legal advice on all matters related to banking, international real estate, asset, project and other financing matters. The sector currently faces a rapidly changing landscape driven by a number of regulatory and economic factors including UK ring-fencing requirements, capital efficacy and repatriation, group consolidation and de-risking, Brexit contingency planning and third party sales.

Our offices provide easy access for financial institutions looking to conduct transactions with international entities and receive expert multi-jurisdictional advice.
