Banking & Finance

The lawyers in our banking department at Sills & Betteridge have a long track record of representing leading banks, including National Westminster Bank, Barclays Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and Handelsbanken, where independent representation has been required across the corporate, construction and general commercial property sectors.

We also represent companies and businesses to which banks provide finance across these sectors. The knowledge our lawyers have obtained in advising banks has proved invaluable in advising our corporate clients in their borrowing.


Matters we can help you with include:

  • commercial property transactions – drafting, advising and registering forms of legal charge in respect of commercial property lending arrangements;
  • construction contracts –  drafting and advising on construction documentation including collateral warranties.
  • corporate banking – representing banks on corporate sales, purchases and management buy-outs involving reviewing and advising on corporate transaction documents in obtaining security in respect of bank lending.  Our work has also included advising and drafting inter creditor arrangements, deeds of priority and debentures;
  • trade finance – advising and negotiating invoice discounting and factoring agreements and arrangements;

Client Feedback

  • Chloe, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you. There are not enough words to describe just how amazingly you have handled this whole process for us. We can’t thank you enough for supporting us through what has been a challenging few months!!

  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.

  • I wanted to say a huge thanks to Wendy for the help and assistance she and her colleagues have given me over the past few years, on a personal and professional level.
    Wendy is at the top of her game and has a wealth of experience which can only be gained through proven work experience. The legal advice you get is second to none.
    I have used Wendy’s services for the buy out of my previous business partner, a commercial bad debt and the conveyancing of a property sale and purchase. Throughout all of my dealings with Wendy, she has been professional and treated my cases with the upmost priority and has always had my best interests at heart.
    Thanks again Wendy for all of your help and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
