Businesses lend and borrow to support their commercial aims and strategy.

Both lenders and borrowers need confidence in the debt arrangements they put in place. These can be complex, and are inevitably tied to the parties’ commercial goals and appetite for risk.

As debt finance lawyers, we structure our advice to reflect those needs, taking into account appropriate security and intercreditor relationships.
