The Firm’s practice in banking and finance is demonstrated by the depth of its clientele across sectors. We advise leading national and international banks, financial institutions, NBFCs, debt funds and corporate houses in almost all forms of banking and finance transactions including structured finance, securitization, project finance, promoter funding/loan against shares, syndicated lending, consortium lending, bonds, debentures and commercial papers. Whilst a large majority of our assignments are as lenders’ or investors’ counsel, we have also acted as borrowers' or issuers' counsel in various transactions.

The banking and finance practice has expanded significantly with the merger of the law firm P&P Legal, a boutique banking & finance firm having been in existence for 22 years with the Firm in the year 2017.

Project finance

Our project finance advice spans almost all sectors of infrastructure finance. From transport to energy (with a focus on renewable energy), the Firm has advised on infrastructure projects across verticals. From negotiating complex and multitier trust and retention agreements and other security arrangements to senior and subordinate lender rights, we have advised on all facets of infrastructure finance.

Structured finance

The Firm advises various clients on complicated domestic and international structured finance transactions. We regularly advise on securitization transactions, pooling of assets or financing management buyouts, acquisition finance or structuring surrogate leveraged buyouts (as leveraged buyouts for public companies are not permissible under Indian laws).

Real estate financing

We have been involved as counsel for various NBFCs and funds (both domestic and international) for financing real estate projects, including slum rehabilitation projects / re-development projects across the country including in Mumbai, NCR, Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata. Significant domain expertise of the team involved is an advantage we bring to the table in this space.
