What our banking and finance lawyers do


Our specialist banking and finance lawyers advise banks and other lenders, borrowers and businesses on a full range of financial matters from transactions to banking dispute resolution and litigation.

From simple loan agreements to the most complex of structured debt arrangements, our specialist banking and finance lawyers help our clients achieve successful, timely and cost-effective outcomes to financial matters, with the minimum of fuss.

What they say

"The practice has a strong ethos that delivers a personable, quality service with a great depth of knowledge of various aspects of the law through their staff.

How our banking and finance lawyers work


Our banking and financial lawyers have real-world experience, some gained from secondments in the financial services sector. This means our banking lawyers have insight into the culture and needs of all parties.

We are members of trade associations such as the Loan Market Association (LMA) and R3. Our finance lawyers regularly contribute, to debates on current issues and to  key sector publications.

The result is a team of banking and finance solicitors at the vanguard of the rapidly evolving issues which are relevant to our clients, always abreast of the latest market developments.

By drawing further on DMH Stallard’s legal expertise across every area of practice, we are able to ensure a bespoke and joined up legal service which meets the precise requirements of every client and of every finance transaction or dispute.

With offices in London, Gatwick, Guildford and throughout the South East, our banking and finance lawyers enjoy strong relationships within the communities in which our clients are based.

How we've helped

A client needed a mixed team of banking lawyers to review a portfolio of loans within a tight time frame. An analytical, investigative approach was required, as well as practical knowledge of SME lending. We drew together a team of dispute resolution and transactional lawyers at short notice who carried out the review by the required deadline.
