Banking and finance

 

For the past decade, economic fluctuations around the globe have placed banks and financial institutions under considerable pressure. Locally, there’s also a fiercely competitive market and heightened post-Royal Commission scrutiny. These factors mean the sector’s need for outstanding legal advice, informed by both technical expertise and genuine commercial understanding, has never been more acute.

Our banking and finance lawyers have experience gained in both private practice and in-house roles. They advise on:

  • all forms of general borrowing arrangements, including bilateral and syndicated loans and related security issues for listed and unlisted companies
  • asset finance and equipment leasing
  • real property finance
  • derivatives
  • restructuring and insolvency, and
  • Personal Property Securities Act (PPSA).

We act for Australian and overseas borrowers and lenders, as well as corporates. Our clients include Asia Debt Management, China Construction Bank, DomaCom, ICBC, Isuzu, Qualitas Securities and Westpac.
