The scope of the work is broad and includes new money mandates, as well as refinancings and traverses through the capital structure. Property finance is a particular strength with the firm handling mandates throughout the UK including a recent complex lender-side engagement to fund the acquisition and development of a purpose built student accommodation project in Scotland.
