The Banking and Financial Services Sector continues to play a crucial role in the UK economy and its fortunes remain an important bellwether of wider economic performance.
Despite the headline-grabbing issues with the sector, the day-to-day business of banking goes on. Businesses involved in the delivery of banking and financial services have had to evolve to meet the challenges of the new world order, in many cases working within new business models whilst encountering ever more challenging regulatory constraints. The UK Banking and Financial Services sector is also striving to maintain its status as a world-leader in this sector, in the face of strong challenges from Europe and further afield.
We act for the majority of the banks who are active in the Scottish market, and can advise in relation to all banking and financing products, including: corporate banking, structured finance, project finance, property finance, insolvency and corporate recovery, banking litigation, tax, capital markets and asset finance.
We also provide support to our colleagues dealing with Corporate, Real Estate and Projects transactions, and we regularly work with leading English and overseas law firms on the Scottish aspects of larger multi-jurisdictional transactions.
