Advising foreign banks, primarily from German-speaking countries, in the framework of their financial operations in Spain has traditionally been and continues to be one of the great strengths of the law firm.
Included within the ambit of the abovementioned activity of providing advice, is the conduct of international credit operations in Spain, particularly those subject to German law, and more concretely, the creation of the specific securities agreed (real estate and chattel property mortgages, assignment of security rights vis-à-vis receivables; pledges or deposits). In this context, our role as legal advisors is not limited to the creation of credit securities, but also encompasses their effective enforcement, taking into account the constant evolution of Spanish Finance Law, and in particular, the specific regulatory regime.
Dealing with classic banking transactions which occur in the context of the financing of business enterprises or real estate financing is also part of our work on a daily basis. Among these, we wish to highlight project financing, structured financing, whether in senior or junior tranches, working capital loans, subordinated loans, bank guarantees, etc. Also falling within the scope of our professional services are the buying and selling and the assignment of credit, refinancing and new financing, as well as the creation of representative offices and branches of foreign banks and credit institutions in Spain.
