Kath Shimmin - Blake Morgan LLP

Within: Banking and finance

Headed by Kath Shimmin, Blake Morgan LLP's practice has the critical mass across the South East to provide clients, which include institutional lenders and major corporates, on a wide range of financing transactions. Particular areas of strength include providing asset finance advice to car finance companies, leasing companies and aircraft manufacturers; advising on loan funds, including handling regulatory issues; and real estate finance. Recent highlights include advising HSBC on an $18.5m term loan facility for the management buyout of car parts manufacturer China Tools, which was secured across subsidiaries in the UK, Hong Kong, China, Turkey and the USA. Steve Cole led on that matter and is singled out for his track record in shari'ah-compliant financings; he recently acted for the borrower on a commodity murabaha facility arranged with Bank of London and the Middle East to finance the development of retirement accommodation in London. Guy Constant is also recommended.
