Financial Services

Our Banking and Financial Services Law teams act across a range of activities including acquisition and leveraged finance, asset finance, debt capital markets, project finance, transaction restructurings, refinancing, and legal assistance arising as a consequence of the establishment of the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) in Ireland. Our clients include a number of prominent domestic and international banks that are active in the areas of corporate and securities work, project and asset finance.  We are actively involved in providing legal assistance to a number of participating institutions in the NAMA process and NAMA directly.

Our Financial Services Law experts are engaged to provide innovative and creative solutions to the complex legal issues and to project manage large portfolio review and restructurings for lenders and cross border corporate clients.

The current difficult trading environment has created the need and the platform for clients to seek advice in the context of lenders managing their debt books and also for corporates seeking sophisticated restructuring advice. 

We are also active in the highly specialised areas of corporate acquisition and leveraged finance particularly for international private equity and corporate clients, global corporate restructuring aligned with corporate migration into Ireland.  The projects and renewable energy sector continues to be strong with both domestic and international lending institutions.
