Banking & Finance Law

The uncertain economic climate has led to unprecedented challenges in the finance sector. It is more difficult than ever to get your deals done.

Our easy-to-follow practice notes (covering a wide range of specialisms) walk you through the whole process: what you need to do, when and why. So that difficult or unfamiliar areas make sense, fast.

Our comprehensive drafting notes mean you'll know when to push a point - and when to let it go. Plus, you can follow direct links to what's happening in the market from the Journal of International Banking and Financial Law, as well as links to commentary from texts such as Lingard's Bank Security Documents, Fuller's Law and Practice of International Capital Markets, Henderson on Derivatives, Paget's and Halsbury's Laws. Underpinning it all are direct links to legislation and cases.

Which means that you spend less time looking for the answers. And more time making sure the funds flow.
