Practices

TRUST. focuses only on the most demanding M&A, strategic investments, complex technology and IP transactions, the energy sector, financial regulation and banking assignments, as well as the related disputes. Please read more about our business areas by clicking the links below.

We structure and negotiate corporate finance agreements from straight-forward security agreements to the most complex corporate restructuring and leveraged buy-outs, derivatives documentation and inter creditor agreement. We have extensive experience in documenting and structuring financial transactions, enabling us to concentrate on the business critical aspects of the deal and provide value through business insight and maturity of judgement. We serve private equity funds and hedge funds, institutional investors and asset management companies.

As we advice a number of financial institutions and companies in negotiating their financing, one of our core competencies is providing advice on the most demanding banking & financial services regulation. We often negotiate and structure financing deals where careful structuring is required and where the interests are considerable. We often also combine our M&A skills together with the Finance practice to make the deal happen.

We continuously update and advice our clients in this sector and have considerable experience in negotiating with the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority. As our lawyers continuously lecture and educate business leaders and other lawyers, we are able to give insight also with basic financial law documents such as security interests, guarantees, bank lending, legal opinions, debt investing and advice corporate lenders in protecting their creditor interests. We co-operate in cross-border banking and financial services law information and education with LawInContext Pte. Ltd. (Zurich Branch) that provides services e.g. to global banks, insurance companies, funds and financial service companies and Hedge Fund Management Compliance.
