Our expertise covers the full range of finance transactions, including domestic and cross-border corporate note programs and standalone issuances, digitalized securities issuance, high-yield bonds and leveraged finance, project finance, Islamic finance, securitizations, CLOs and all other forms of asset-backed structured finance transactions and secured lending.  

We act for our trustee and agency clients across the full lifecycle of these transactions, including disputes and litigation, restructurings, liability management exercises, defaults and the general exercise of trustee powers and discretions. 

Our team also regularly advises trust and agency providers, account banks and custodians on large-scale documentary review programs and has extensive experience of the use of legal technology solutions to deliver these projects efficiently.
