Borrowers

We provide English legal support to overseas borrowers and their legal advisers on reviewing and negotiating all types of facility agreements, in particular LMA loan agreements, and English law guarantees and security documents, including financing real estate, corporate acquisitions, projects and assets.

Overseas Legal Advisers

We know that, very often, a lender’s or borrower’s legal adviser is very familiar with the loan and security documentation. In this case we are more than happy to “take a back seat†and advise on specific provisions or questions and leave you to deal with the client and the negotiations. Equally, where required, we are happy to take the lead on the drafting or negotiation of documents.
