Debt Capital Markets
We serve as legal counsel to South Africa's major banking groups and a number of major international banks. We are often mandated to advise on banks' lending arrangements and compliance with the South African banking and financial services regulatory framework. Our mandate for foreign banks at times extends to advising on the establishment of representative offices in South Africa and related aspects of the regulatory framework.
We also advise borrowers from the public and private sector, and many financial services providers and other organisations that have direct and indirect interests in lending arrangements. These organisations include asset managers, developmental finance institutions, private equity funds, insurance underwriters, rating agencies, security trusts and guarantors
