Acquisition and leveraged finance

Our Acquisition Finance group advises financial institutions, corporate borrowers and private equity houses on acquisitions and leveraged finance transactions in the primary and secondary markets.

We act for all UK clearing banks and advise some of the world’s top 50 banks. On the borrower side, we advise clients from major global organisations to smaller private companies across all sectors with a particular experience in travel, healthcare, food and drink, diversified industrials and retail.

They clearly had the background and experience on similar transactions in the sector. They were able to bring that to the front when we were discussing specific commercial and technical issues. Similarly, when an issue arose with the pensions work, they could come up with specific ways in which we could protect the bank further.Andrea Dann, HSBC Bank plc
