Practice groupBanking and Finance

Mannheimer Swartling's Banking and Finance group advises financial institutions as well as large and medium-sized enterprises on every aspect of the financial markets. The breadth and depth of our practice allow us to provide clients with the latest market trends and financing techniques.

Taking a joint approach to financings, all debt capital markets and bank financings are handled by the same practice group. This integrated approach results in the adoption of best practices across financing types and effective comparison of financing alternatives. Our finance lawyers also complement their own expertise by drawing on the firm's strong industry and regulatory knowledge in areas such as tax, energy, telecoms and real estate.
