Our lawyers advise banks and other financial institutions as well as investors and businesses on financing transactions of any kind.
We advise both lenders and borrowers on acquisition financing, real estate financing, project financing and general corporate financings in all their forms (including syndicated loans and club deals).
Other Corporate finance matters (loan notes (Schuldscheine), private placements, listed bonds, cash pooling, factoring, swaps and derivates), fund financings, venture loans and capital call lines are also part of our daily advisory.
Sustainable finance and ESG issues have become an integral part of modern financing practice. Our lawyers have in-depth market knowledge and are familiar with the latest developments in the field of sustainable finance – also with regard to regulatory implications.
Financing advice also includes advice in crisis situations (restructuring, workout, insolvency). In this respect, we have long-standing experience on both the lender and borrower side and also assist our clients in proceedings under the German Debt Securities Act (Schuldverschreibungsgesetz), the German Corporate Stabilization and Restructuring Act (Unternehmensstabilisierungs- und Restrukturierungsgesetz - StaRUG) and the German Insolvency Code (Insolvenzordnung) (regular insolvency, protective shield and insolvency plan proceedings). In addition, we have comprehensive know-how in the realisation of collateral.
On international financings, we work together with excellent partner firms abroad. We are happy to provide legal opinions and capacity opinions pursuant to German law.
