Banking and Capital Markets

Our experienced Banking and Capital Markets team is one of the largest teams of finance lawyers in any Irish firm. Our clients include many of the largest domestic and international banks and other financial institutions as well as an extensive list of "blue chip" borrowers and advisors.

Our services range from banking regulation and general corporate banking matters to complex capital markets, securitisation and structured finance transactions.

Our transactional expertise includes advising both lenders and borrowers on credit facilities – including term, revolving and composite facilities on a syndicated, club or bi-lateral basis – and on security, credit support and enforcement issues.

We offer specialist expertise in secured property lending, debt financings for investment funds and pension funds, and acquisition finance for M&A transactions. 

Our regulatory practice advises on the establishment of banks and branches of EU and non-EU credit institutions in Ireland and on their acquisition and sale. We also advise on payment services, e-banking, consumer credit, credit servicing and banking regulation and licensing.
