Banking & Finance Bulletin - Winter 2019

Welcome to the winter edition of our Banking & Finance bulletin – our first of 2019.

The year ahead looks to be a very busy one for our Restructuring & Insolvency specialists (from whom you can hear more by clicking here). Meanwhile, for those of us in the Banking & Finance space, 2019 promises to be a little less predictable given the uncertain times in which the UK economy finds itself. Nevertheless, our banking and finance specialists have sought to identify some of the key themes for the loan and finance markets over the next twelve months – please click on the link to the first article below to read more.

In this edition you will also find links to articles below in which we cover the newly enacted Business Contract Terms (Assignment of Receivables) Regulations 2018, some tricky issues with financial collateral arrangements and some recent court cases which provide useful practical tips for those undertaking loan transactions. Happy reading!
