Sub practice

Our German group is a core part of Allen & Overy’s global general lending practice and market leader across a variety of sectors.

The team of German, English and New York qualified lawyers regularly acts for some of the most active banks in the German loan market as well as for a large number of borrowers. We’ve built our strength through a broad client base and from working on small, local deals as well as big ticket cross-border transactions.

Our focus

Our experience of advising domestic and international financiers and borrowers enables us to help our clients with all types of financing transactions and anticipate potential issues.

Our clients often call on us for advice on groundbreaking deals and structures, which can lead to a new market standard. We offer advice across every discipline and have a track record of advising on some of the most complex equity and debt offerings. This is invaluable when corporates are demanding alternative sources of funding. These sources include: high-yield bonds which are emerging as essential in the mix of possible finance structuring in debt capital markets; banking and leveraged finance; and restructurings of corporate debt. Few law firms can match our range of clients for large-scale structured financings, corporate mainstream lending, acquisition financings and refinancings.
