Allen & Overy’s global fund finance practice has extensive experience in advising banks, agents, alternative lenders and investment fund managers on a broad range of upstream and downstream facilities.
Our lawyers bring in-depth technical and commercial knowledge to a wide range of lending structures across the fund finance spectrum. Working alongside specialist lawyers in our real asset (including private equity, real estate, transportation and infrastructure), tax and regulatory teams, we offer an exceptional breadth of experience and as a result our clients benefit from our clear understanding of the current legal and commercial issues relevant to all parties in fund finance transactions.
A particular strength is our ability to offer specialists across our global fund finance practice and in the key areas of finance, fund establishment, tax and regulatory. These specialists frequently work together on financing transactions involving different types of assets across multiple jurisdictions. We regularly work on facilities with European (including UK and Luxembourg) and offshore (including Channel Islands and Cayman Islands) entities. We have a deep understanding of the issues relevant both for financiers and also for funds and their investors.
