Our highly versatile team has broad experience in finance. We work on a wide range of financing initiatives from the simplest financing transaction to the most complex. In doing so, we retain the highest quality of legal advice across the board.
We act for and support many leading Maltese clients, and advises a number of international corporates with a Maltese presence. This makes us the adviser of choice to corporate borrowers and issuers.
We are often involved in structured finance and securitisation transactions. Typically, where major corporates use Malta-based entities as part of an international structure, they seek to engage a Maltese firm to handle all local legal aspects and to contribute to the client's team. Our involvement in these transactions has included conducting due diligence exercises, assisting in planning and structuring transactions, reviewing disclosure documents, drafting and preparation of transaction documents and rendering of legal opinions on Maltese law with reference to transaction structures and documentation.
Our financing expertise includes advising on:
- acquisition finance;
- derivatives, including interest rate, currency, credit, equity, commodity, insurance and other swaps and options, repos and stock lending;
- leasing and asset finance for aircraft, ships and other capital assets;
- loan finance;
- project finance;
- securitisation and structured finance;
- debt capital markets.
