Banking & Finance

Skip to France content


Risk: it's inherent in any financial transaction. Whether you're a borrower or a lender, you need to properly manage that risk. Doing so requires lawyers who can prepare loan and security documentation that addresses the issues common to all credit transactions and those specific to your project. The legal advice you receive needs to be exhaustive, fair and consistent with market practice.

You should also expect your lawyers to find innovative solutions for reducing transaction costs and, as the case may be, increasing cross-collateralisation to the greatest extent permitted by law - all in an efficient manner and at a fair price.
