Banking

We focus on providing practical commercial solutions to our clients’ needs. We are on the panel of legal advisors to one of the pillar banks and advise a number of other lenders on specific matters. We regularly advise lenders, companies and individuals on all aspects of secured and unsecured commercial and property lending and in relation to general banking matters.

We regularly advise on a range of lease finance agreements, the structuring of equipment leasing transactions and related matters.

With changing economic circumstances, we are increasingly advising lending institutions, pension trustees and wealth management companies on issues relating to distressed loans and restructuring loans and security. We also work with lenders and borrowers on recovery and disposal strategies for property and assets securing such loans.

Our work in relation to commercial and property lending includes drafting facility letters and loan agreements, taking security over various types of assets, mortgages, debentures, charges, guarantees and indemnities, assignments and inter-lender priority agreements. We work closely with our clients’ UK solicitors in perfecting security on UK assets over Irish trusts, companies and other entities.

The firm undertakes outsourced standard legal work relating to drafting and reporting on bank guarantees, bonds, letters of credit, counter-indemnities, trusts, leases, account opening documents and related standard banking documents.
