Banking & financial services

A full service offering

Our team are trusted advisors in the banking & finance sector, working closely with both banks and borrowers and providing specialist legal advice on banking and finance issues across all sectors.

From our offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness, we work with many of the UK’s leading financial institutions and high street banks, as well as our clients in the private, public and third sectors as they interact with their lenders.

The breadth of our experience of working with financial institutions, funds and lenders, including in-house placements at major UK banks, means we understand what's important when funding transactions. It’s this perspective which affords us invaluable insight when acting for lenders and borrowers alike.

As one of Scotland’s largest full-service law firms, our experience of working spans every area in which the firm operates, from property finance to mergers and acquisitions advice. Last year, we acted in around 500 transactions worth around £1 billion in total.

We can also call on the support of specialist lawyers from other disciplines within the firm to support our work, including areas such as litigation, corporate and real estate.

Much of our work has multi jurisdictional aspects and we regularly work with legal firms in the rest of the UK and across the world in structuring and completing banking and finance transactions. Our knowledge of the Scottish legal system is also called upon in cross-border transactions. 

"The banking and finance team at Harper Macleod has an excellent reputation."
