Banking & Finance

  1. The central role and continuous evolution of the banking and financial sector require detailed knowledge of the regulations and a highly strategic approach, with an overall view of the myriad activities and markets involved.

  1. Banks, investment funds, financial institutions and national and international companies rely to us to face the challenges presented by markets and global policies, and to deal with every aspect of their transactions.
  1. We act as consultants in the negotiation, structuring and contractual documentation of various financing transactions, leveraged finance, acquisition finance, property finance, asset finance, project finance, securitisation, transfer of loan portfolios - including non-performing - factoring and reverse factoring, both domestic and cross-border.
