Richard OmanAddleshaw Goddard

Addleshaw Goddard‘s large Manchester finance team separates itself from many competitors via its breadth of expertise. In addition to offerings focused on corporate, leveraged, and project financing, it has two distinct sub-units dedicated to asset financing and asset-based lending. Andrew Maskill is particularly known for this work, representing a mix of domestic and international clients. It also serves on lending panels for a number of major regional lenders. While asset-based lending expert Simon Prendergast has joined Dentons’ London office, his role has already been filled by the recently promoted Lauren Priest-Stephens. Martin O’Shea leads the practice, with broad experience advising on real estate finance. Richard Oman has been heavily advised in a number of LIBOR transition matters.
