Banking & Finance

The importance of managing risk across all types of banking and financial transactions has never been more apparent.

International and multi-jurisdictional activity, particularly in new and emerging markets, is driving creativity in structuring and transactions which requires a team of lawyers who know how to get the optimal results from each deal. At Collas Crill, our credentials are clear: with our well-established banking and finance team with some of the best known transactions both internationally and locally, there isn’t much we have not encountered, from being the first to manage public/private financing, the firm with one of the largest portfolio of lending transactions within the commercial property market in the Channel Islands, and our expertise in Islamic finance structures and funds finance transactions.

Our approach is simple: our clients (and their law firms) instruct us because of our depth of expertise and our style in managing transactions. We are partner-led in all our transactions because we recognise the importance of accessibility to senior team members. And most importantly we provide sound advice and a service delivered in a commercial and user-friendly manner.
