His banking and finance practice involves advising borrowers and lenders on areas like acquisition and leveraged finance, asset finance, Islamic finance, project finance, real estate finance, debt restructuring and security enforcement. He also advises arrangers, dealers and SPVs in relation to debt issues (including note programmes and securitisations) and structured products.
