Structured Credit

Since the early 2000s, our Practice has advised leading banks, both French and foreign, in the implementation of complex financing.

These are for the purpose of:

  • Acquisition of individual real estate assets or those in portfolio (mainly for offices, businesses, logistics, homes or other activities);
  • Completion of works;
  • Refinancing a borrower’s debt or cash requirements; or
  • Financing of wind or photovoltaic projects.

In this context, our Practice regularly works closely with lawyers and other advisors from the banking and financial world, who are called upon to intervene in these areas.

Our expertise is focused on structuring financing and their guarantees as well as auditing real estate assets.

Our team also remains at the disposal of its clients to provide advice and assistance in the daily monitoring of funding (be it post-signature formalities or any advice in case of syndication, endorsement, refund/refinancing or under the German Pfandbrief regulations).

The team in charge of this activity, led by Muriel Mignard, with Sylvie Campagne-Le Gall, has a dozen colleagues, notaries and legal experts, specialised and experienced in the field. If the scope of a file requires it, this team occasionally calls on other Practice colleagues to improve processing speed.

Availability, listening, responsiveness, concern for accuracy and legal news are part of the everyday actions of this sector, exposed to economic contingencies and requiring ad hoc contracts.
