Financing

Whether you are a bank or investor looking to provide financing, or a borrower wishing to obtain financing, we are here to help. Thanks to many years of experience, we can guide you through the entire process, giving you all the assistance you need with financing options and structures.

Our services cover every stage of the procedure: from drafting the documentation (e.g. LMA documentation, credit agreements) and establishing security interests (e.g. pledges on shares, mortgages) to formulating and issuing legal opinions. We also have extensive knowledge and experience of syndicated loans (club deals) offered by groups of banks and the specific requirements that apply to the associated transaction documentation.

We can advise you on other forms of financing as well, such as:

  • conventional business financing
  • acquisition financing
  • real estate financing
  • other asset-based forms of financing
  • leasing and factoring
  • private bond issues
  • financial restructuring

Cross-border partnerships

We regularly work in close partnership with firms in various other countries. These international links make our Financing practice group an attractive partner for international financing structures involving Dutch companies.
