Banking & finance

Having the correct financial arrangements in place is a vital component to any successful transaction. Our team of specialists advise both financial institutions and those looking to raise finance on a broad spectrum of arrangements covering debt and related security terms and equity fundraisings.

These arrangements typically cover acquisition and property finance as well as requirements for growth capital; we also have particular expertise in advising both borrowers and lenders on financial arrangements in the agriculture and estate sector. Our team works closely with colleagues from our corporate and property teams to deliver a joined-up and cost effective solution for clients.

Clients include a number of the UK's leading clearing banks as well as private funds and we have approved panel status with a number of them, including Santander and the Lloyds Banking Group.

We specialise in security enforcement and banking disputes which ensures the interests of secured lenders are properly protected in the event of default.

What they say about us:

Chambers (2017) states that the team are "... extremely proactive and quick to turn things around.", with special mention being given to Sophie Eales who is "... well known and highly rated by everyone" and Nick Gent who is praised for his "... amazing ability to give clients confidence in doing things".

We are also ranked in Legal 500 (2015), "Nick Gent is the key contact at Trethowans and he has handled an impressive swathe of lender and borrower instructions, including multiple financings for major client Santander."
