The arrival of¬†Victoria Symons¬†has significantly strengthened the practice at¬†Cripps LLP; clients 'rate her and the team very highly'. She joins a practice headed by¬†Nigel Stanford¬†and¬†¬†James Beatton¬†which is praised for its 'top levels of service' and for its 'engaging and proactive approach'. It acts for lenders (including Clydesdale and Lloyds Banking Group) as well as borrowers on a range of transactions; recent highlights include advising CH1 Investment Partners on structuring a number of SPVs that will raise funds from high-net-worth investors for the purpose of financing the development and construction of solar farms and other renewable energy projects. In another key transaction, Beatton advised HSBC on the ‚ā¨5m acquisition financing for the purchase of a company in Germany, while Stanford acted alongside¬†Julie Hughes¬†for AdEPT Telecom on a ¬£30m syndicated facility provided by Barclays Bank and RBS.
