Loan agreements and security documentation need a balance of careful planning, negotiation, attention to detail and strategic insight to ensure you achieve your financial objectives.

We have significant experience in negotiating loan agreements and drafting finance term sheets as well as negotiating complex loan agreements, facility agreements, debentures and mortgage agreements that meet the needs of borrowers (many of whom are property developers), guarantors and both senior and secondary lenders.

For lenders, we’re highly experienced at working with borrowers and guarantors and understand how they think and behave and this unique perspective allows us to see things that others might miss and can cost you financial, commercial and reputational loss.
