Loyens & Loeff's banking and finance team is praised by clients for its 'responsiveness and pragmatism'. It works collaboratively with other practices to cover the entire ambit of advice on transactional, general advisory and regulatory issues to corporates and financial institutions. One of the cornerstones of the practice is in the project finance arena, where the group's 'in-depth knowledge and experience' is particularly evident in sectors such as renewable energy and infrastructure. The firm has been involved in the financing and development of all offshore wind farms in Belgium to date. Team head Marc Vermylen, Thomas Chellingsworth and others are acting as borrower's counsel to Northwester II NV on financing the development of a 218.5MW offshore wind farm in the Belgian part of the North Sea. Vermylen also recently led a team, which included senior associate Jan Missoul, in the advice to KBC Bank on the development, construction and financing of a biomass plant near Unilin’s production site in Wielsbeke, Belgium. Elsewhere, Vermylen and Koen Panis are sought-after for their experience in asset-based lending and trade receivables programmes; clients in this area include Wells Fargo, HSBC and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The group also handles various other transactions; a recent highlight involved Panis acting for Selecta Group on financing its acquisition of Pelican Rouge. It also has a notable real estate finance offering. In addition, the team also advises a wide variety of clients on the regulation of financial services and products, including investment funds, insurance companies and pension funds. In the debt capital markets arena, the group's work includes high-yield and convertible bond issues, among other matters.
