We advise on all types of business finance, from conventional bank lending secured over company assets, to more contemporary models such as crowdfunding and peer to peer lending. We are also experienced in dealing with the regulatory and legal issues which arise when businesses are looking to set up their own funding models.

Our expertise and range of experience in this area allows us to focus our advice directly on areas most commercially relevant to you, and to deal with other aspects of the process on your behalf leaving you to concentrate on your business.

Our tailored approach coupled with our extensive experience means we are aware of:

  • the differing needs of lenders and borrowers;
  • the considerations which apply depending on the size of the investment or loan; and
  • the level of advice which will be required when acting for a start-up business going through its first financing round, as compared to an established business refinancing existing debt with a longstanding lender.

As well as being able to deal with the sourcing and provision of finance, we are also able to provide specialist advice in relation to any disputes which arise, including issues relating to personal guarantees, the enforceability of charges and debentures, LIBOR manipulation, and the mis-selling of swaps and other financial derivative products.

Charges are usually based on our hourly rates plus administrative charges and disbursements. We will provide you with an initial estimate of your likely legal costs and will update this as your requirements or the circumstances of the work change.

We may also be able to offer fixed priced options for clients depending on their budget and the size, type and complexity of the work involved.

We would be pleased to discuss your requirements free of charge and tailor a costs proposal accordingly.
