SCP’s finance and banking team focuses on giving advice to banks and non-bank lenders on their commercial and retail lending, and on financing transactions at all levels, from bulk residential loans to complex structured finance transactions. Working with our team will bring you long standing experience of advising on and drafting security documentation, commonsense, cost-effective and first-class legal services


How We Can Help

Our role is to protect our clients’ legal interests whilst providing commercial and practical solutions to legal issues as they arise.  When it comes to lending transactions, our approach is to understand what it is that all parties want to achieve and to develop a suitable response. Just as importantly, by meeting the cost and quality expectations of our clients’ customers, we are able to support our clients’ business objectives and help to preserve their brand images and reputations.  In delivering services, we have substantial information technology resources that enable us to deliver large-scale services, such as mortgage documentation, without diminishing the quality of our service.
