    Banks & Non-Bank Lenders Legal Services

The last decade has seen dramatic growth in the number of lenders operating in the global markets.

They range from global institutions to smaller, specialised lenders as well as technology-driven retail and consumer lending platforms. They face different strategic, operational and compliance requirements but all need sector-specific legal expertise.

We can advise you on both domestic and cross-border lending as well as regulatory and compliance issues, corporate transactions and commercial matters. Our presence in the Middle East means that we can support your locally based business with particular expertise ensuring compliance with Sharia principles.

We work with some of the largest retail and investment banks, helping them to support their clients’ growth and investment plans. We also work with non-bank lenders such as debt funders, venture capital providers and technology platforms to help extend capital flows to news areas of the market.

Our market leading Private Wealth team gives us particular expertise in the private banking sector and an understanding of the specific requirements of high net worth clients. We advise private banks globally wishing to provide private banking services such as commercial and residential lending and cash management in their respective markets.
