We provide advice to and represent a broadly based and diversified number of providers and consumers of credit around the world.

By acting for both lenders and borrowers in transactions ranging from simple credit agreements to complex multifacility, multicurrency financings with multiple syndicates, clients benefit from our in-depth know-how and practical results-oriented perspective.

On the creditor side, clients include banks, leasing companies, finance companies, merchant banks, investment funds and other financial institutions. On the debtor side, we regularly act for corporate, trust and institutional borrowers in connection with their financing requirements.

In light of the unique risk-oriented nature of a financial institution's business and the highly regulated environment in which it operates, we recognize the importance of providing timely and seamless services to fully protect our clients' legal interests. No complex financing transaction occurs in isolation. In many cases, complexities will arise due to the structuring of acquisitions, due diligence, the creation of holding companies and issues relating to taxation, securities, restructuring and insolvency, pension and employee benefits, labour and real estate. We believe in an interdisciplinary team approach to meeting a client's transactional and advisory needs.

Our lawyers are able to access considerable resources and will draw on the expertise of their colleagues for their particular know-how.
