Our finance practice advises on an extensive range of financing arrangements and is able to accommodate both lenders and borrowers for any financing structure required – from cross-border leverage finance, hybrid fund finance, complex restructurings and structured finance, through to high yield bond work.

We are recognised as a market leader in the alternative credit market and advise a wide range of credit funds and hedge funds across the variety of transactions they undertake, including the deployment of capital (in LBOs and other leveraged financings, distressed transactions, acquisitions of debt portfolios and receivables finance) and in raising finance (by way of leverage facilities and working capital, co-investment and bridging finance).
