I advise institutional and private clients on a wide range of banking and finance matters, including general corporate lending, real estate finance, restructuring, acquisition finance and more recently alternative forms of finance including asset based lending, factoring and invoice discounting.
In addition to general transactional corporate lending, in recent years I have also managed and participated in multi-departmental teams on loan sale projects involving large portfolio sales and bi-lateral off market sales and acquisitions, acting for vendors and bidders/acquirers.
Recent examples of my work include:
- Advised a leading Irish bank in relation to restructuring facilities (>€100m) to numerous borrowers in the hospitality sector in Ireland secured on some of Ireland's leading hotels.
- Advised a leading Irish bank in relation to drafting its template asset based lending documentation.
- Acted as Irish counsel for a German client and its subsidiary companies in relation to a £30m borrowing base facility from an international bank.
- Acted for numerous borrowers in relation to settlement negotiations and subsequent acquisition and refinance of their loans from an international fund.
I have been recommended in the Legal 500 list of European lawyers in London.
