Corporate lending

Eversheds Sutherland has a leading Banking and Finance team of over 100 lawyers. We have extensive experience of working in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa with borrowers, lenders and debt advisers in the corporate lending market.

We act for all UK clearing banks and advise many of the world’s top 50 banks. From the borrower side, we advise clients from major global organisations to small private companies across all sectors.

Our deep understanding of the processes, issues and documentation for corporate lending enables us to give strategic advice at any early stage to ensure we identify the key issues for you whilst recognising ‘market’ parameters.

Our experience

Our experience includes:

  • club and syndicated facilities
  • bilateral facilities
  • private placements
  • public bond issues

As you would expect of an international law firm, we can draw upon lawyers in tax, corporate, real estate, pensions and employment to support our banking and finance offering as and when required.

We have also developed a unique way of delivering large projects and transactions called DealTrack. This gives you greater control and predictability, allowing you to reduce workload, minimise disruption and get the best project outcome, on time and within budget.

Who do we work with?

Examples of our recent experience includes advising:

  • the Royal Bank of Scotland plc on the financing for the acquisition of LETN Solutions LTD by Node4 limited backed by LDC
  • the syndicate of banks comprising HSBC Bank plc, Barclays on the £75m refinancing of Thorntons Plc
  • Next plc on its £250m London listed bond issue
  • the lenders on the £200m refinancing of Halfords Group plc
