Banking & Finance

Lending or borrowing money requires consideration of structuring, negotiation of terms and documentation. Where financing of projects (in particular) is involved, an awareness of underlying commercial value drivers is important, as in many cases is an appreciation of the complexities associated with cross-border structures and the ability to navigate associated international regimes.

We assist lenders and borrowers with:

  • Project finance
  • Commercial loan facilities
  • Property finance
  • Financial products and services
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Security documentation, enforcement and advice

Our clients in this space include banks, ASX listed companies, US and Hong Kong based investment funds, borrowers and developers.

  • Acting on complex project finance transactions for resources projects in Australia and internationally
  • Advising banks on loan contracts
