Beverley Jones, Partner at Acuity Law

Banking & Finance

Lead Partner

We act for lenders and borrowers on finance transactions across the credit spectrum, from simple term loans to complex syndicated loan facilities with tiered priority structures.

No matter how much you are borrowing or lending, we ensure that the funding documentation is tailored to meet your needs, guiding you through the transaction and ensuring there are no surprises.

We undertake detailed due diligence exercises for banks or investors considering advancing funds and advise on investment agreements, debt instruments and security and finance packages. 

We work with specialist lenders, alternative lenders, investment funds and brokers, and we’re also experts in project finance, particularly in the energy, housing and healthcare sectors.

While we identify and explain the issues we see in any transaction, we always offer solutions and make clear commercial recommendations. Our focus is on delivering finance structures that allow transactions to happen and give you the all-important security you need.

We also have specialist joint venture solicitors who can assist with joint ventures, collaboration arrangements and strategic alliances.
