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;
