About

The requirements of banks and lending institutions are constantly evolving, and even straightforward financing involves increasingly complex legal documentation.


At Hewitsons we have a team of skilled lawyers who understand the lending industry and are able to assist you whether you are a lender or a borrower.


We can help you with:


  • Advising on facility agreements and lending terms, mortgages personal guarantees and debentures;
  • satisfying lender pre-drawdown requirements including providing reports and certificates
  • protecting any security at the Land Registry and/or Companies House; and
  • dealing with any litigation or other matters arising from disputes between lenders and borrowers

Our team of specialists have experience in all aspects of finance matters and represent intuitional lenders like banks but also more unique and novel funders such as to the energy, aviation and shipping industries in cross jurisdictional matters and will be happy to provide a swift and comprehensive advice.

Latest testimonials

"I should like to thank you personally for the attention to detail which you gave to this transaction. I must say that when you said that you would be on holiday for a fortnight or so between exchange of contracts and completion, I did think we might possibly encounter a few problems. That was not to be the case, which confirms that you had tied up any possible loose ends before handing it over to David Wells. This sale has gone well...Thank you."
