Banking and finance legal advice

Banking and finance is still the powerhouse of the global economy, despite the financial crisis of 2008.

Eversheds’ 100 strong international banking and finance law team has a wealth of experience advising leading corporates, funds and financial institutions on a full range of finance transactions, from highly structured debt arrangements to vanilla loans.

Real strength and depth

Our ability to draw upon our international legal experts in other product areas, including tax, M&A and real estate, means that we can offer our clients an expert service on all aspects of their finance transactions. This, together with our access to sector specialists who truly understand our clients’ business drivers and the context in which they operate, offers a critical competitive advantage when structuring and negotiating deals.

The quality of the support and advice we received was first-rate. They found issues that other legal advisers were hoping would be missed. It was not just legal advice they provided; they also provided significant practical advice, particularly in relation to some of the cultural issues and differences between the UK and Europe in terms of business".
Tim Bailey, HSBC Bank plc

Credible international capability

With offices in major business centres around the world, and strong relationships in areas where we do not have offices, we are well known for our ability to support clients in advancing their strategies wherever they do business.

Many of our lawyers are dual qualified and fluent in English and their local language enabling us to operate credibly in international debt markets while communicating effectively and sensitively in the home jurisdiction of the transaction. We also add real value to cross-border deals by bringing to bear our tried and tested international project management skills, resulting in increased efficiency and costs savings.
