Banking and asset finance
Morton Fraser has one of Scotland's largest dedicated finance practices and one of the UK's largest ABL, asset and invoice finance practices. We act for all of the UK's clearing banks, and for many building societies, leasing companies and overseas financial institutions.
We offer real expertise from transaction-driven finance to consumer finance and consumer credit regulation. We advise on deals with values running into billions of pounds a year.
Clear advice on banking, asset and invoice finance law
We have the experience to allow us to be confident in our advice. Our aim, always, is to help the transaction, not to create problems. We produce documentation in clear English, readily understandable to the lay reader. Our clients comment that we win business for the firm because we explain options clearly and don't hide behind legal niceties and uncertainties. Our aim is always to help provide a business solution and get the deal done.
Benefits we bring
We're market leaders in asset and invoice finance and highly rated for corporate debt transactions. The breadth of our practice means that we understand lenders' transaction needs and know their processes and policies. This allows us to provide the right advice whether we're acting for lender or borrower. The range of work we do means that we know the likely "sticking points" and can anticipate problems rather than reacting to them.
Our approach to fees
We give value for money and compete comfortably with City of London firms in quality of work at the costs appropriate to our office locations. When we offer a fixed fee we stand by that fixed fee.
