Banking and Finance

Banks today face an ever increasing raft of challenges, both regulatory and commercial, as well as competition for deals from non-bank lenders and alternative funders. We provide our banking clients with a comprehensive service on- and off-transaction, including our plain English precedents for their business. We help our clients keep up with the changing landscape in order to remain competitive in the market place whilst delivering quality service to their own customers. Our clients focus on relationship banking and we work hard to support them in doing so. We also advise P2P lenders and invoice discounters on their lending and security arrangements, and their documentation.

Corporate Advisory

With a depth of multi-jurisdictional experience, we ensure that advice is provided in the context of other key offshore centres and with a knowledge of the bigger global picture. Our clients appreciate our proactive attitude, sensible and user-friendly advice, accuracy and honesty in pricing matters, and our senior-level involvement in all matters. In an increasingly complex, competitive and regulated market, we'll make sure your business or venture reaches its full potential.

Investment Funds, Private Equity and Venture Capital

Our fund specialists offer advice on all aspects relating to the establishment, authorisation and structuring of funds and related investment vehicles. We have particular expertise acting for emerging managers who are building their business and acting for institutional investors, including acting for private equity funds and sovereign wealth funds on joint venture and fund investments, as well as planning their internal corporate structures. We provide a highly personalised service working with our clients and their onshore counsel to build strong relationships over the long term.

Middle East and North Africa (MENA)

The demand for professional advisers who understand the needs of clients in the region has never been more important. With Shariah-compliant products and Islamic finance becoming increasingly mainstream and integrated into the global financial system, it is important to partner with a team who understands the complexities of these structures, while also understanding how more traditional structures can be applied to meet the needs of Middle Eastern clients.

Risk and Regulatory

Collas Crill's multi-disciplinary approach to providing risk and regulatory services ensures that every aspect of our clients' businesses is covered. By drawing on the skills and experience of a highly experienced team of lawyers with expertise from across the firm, we are able to deal with all legal compliance issues that could affect your business, whether contentious or non-contentious. The assistance we are able to provide ranges from strategic matters to specific operational issues.
