Sills & Betteridge's banking department has a long track record of representing leading banks where independent representation has been required, including National Westminster Bank, Barclays Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and Handelsbanken across the corporate, construction and general commercial property sectors.
- 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;
- 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.
We also represent companies and business to whom banks provide finance in the situations described above. The knowledge we have obtained in advising banks has proved invaluable in advising corporate and business clients in their borrowing.
