Banking

The Banking industry remains central to African trade and business success, creating great ongoing opportunity for the sector. As experts at helping clients across the sector, we can help you take advantage of opportunities and protect your business interests. With the world finance markets regaining balance, clients continue to look to OOLLP’s Banking lawyers to help them navigate the credit markets as well as the compliance requirements for enacted regulations.

We work with all participants in the financial markets, including many of the leading financial institutions, borrowers, sponsors, and other capital providers and users, to help them analyse potential risks and develop both short- and long-term plans best suited for their business goals. Our clients benefit from our sophisticated understanding of the industry worldwide whether their transaction is local, national, or international.

In addition to our core lender and borrower representations, we advise clients in both new and established financial transactions and structures, including acquisition financings, asset based lending and cross-border investments.
