I have over 24 years’ experience in banking and finance and whilst my practice is dominated by lender work, I also cover a significant amount of borrower work.

Within: Banking and finance

DWF has a strong UK profile and expanding international presence with a body of mandates from domestic and offshore banks and borrowers, including fund clients. Corporate and real estate financing transactions are core strengths along with the financing aspects of renewable energy schemes. Work also arises from other industries, including hotels and leisure, healthcare and social housing. Practice head Grant Docherty, who has more than 25 years’ experience acting for borrowers and lenders, advised Santander UK Plc on the circa £11.5m refinancing of a group of nine Guernsey-based special purpose vehicles that have invested in commercial and residential properties throughout England. Docherty also assisted Bladnoch Distillery with negotiating a £2.5m asset finance facility from Lombard North Central. Geoff Stansfield, who leads the real estate finance side of the practice, and senior associate Alan Glen are other key contacts in the team, whose clients include Royal Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Banking Group and Close Property Finance. Chris McLauchlan joined Eversheds Sutherland.
