Banking & Finance

Financial transactions require careful consideration of the structure of the transaction, negotiating the commercial and legal terms and drafting and reviewing the documents to ensure they reflect what has been agreed.

When it comes to project financing (in particular), you need an awareness of the underlying commercial value drivers.

When dealing with international finance, you also need an appreciation of the complexities associated with cross-border structures and the ability to navigate associated international regimes.
