Banking and Finance

We focus on providing practical commercial solutions to our clients’ needs. We are on the panel of legal advisors to two of the pillar banks in Ireland and advise several other lenders. 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 assist in specialist structuring of loan transactions involving trusts and other structures and the taking of security over intellectual property, investment instruments and other assets.

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

We have advised lending institutions, pension trustees and wealth management companies on issues relating to distressed loans and restructuring loans and security. We have also worked with lenders and borrowers on recovery and disposal strategies for property and assets securing such loans and advised on the effects of bankruptcy.

Our work 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.

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.
