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.
