Corporate Lending

A market-leading corporate lending practice

International financial institutions and blue chip corporates continue to turn to Allen & Overy's corporate lending practice for assistance in structuring and documenting the most high profile deals in the market.

Proven track record

We are ranked No.1 legal advisor for Syndicated Loans in EMEA for both borrowers and lenders by Thomson Reuters signifying the confidence that both borrowers and banks have in Allen & Overy.

We act on the largest global loan transactions in the world often driven by high profile corporate events. However, we are also regularly involved on less newsworthy transactions we do more deals by number than any other law firm, not just by volume.

In-depth industry expertise

Our experience in corporate lending advising both borrowers and lenders gives us a 360 degrees view of the market and a unique commercial understanding of the bankability of deal terms. We recognise that parties to any general lending transaction require efficient reliable execution. We bring years of market leading experience and industry expertise to every transaction on which we act to exceed this expectation, demonstrating why we are the standout firm in the market.

Our corporate finance solutions offering includes an interdisciplinary team of lawyers from our Corporate Lending, Capital Markets, Corporate and Restructuring teams. As a result, our coverage spans the spectrum of debt products including:
  • a number of hybrid finance options such as bank/bond structures

  • leveraged Buyouts (LBOs)
  • margin loans,
  • Initial Public Offerings (IPOs)
