At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
We are recognised as one of Scotland's and the UK's best asset & invoice finance practices. We act for banks, lessors, lessees, brokers and other intermediaries.
The core team, led by Beverley Woodhas experts covering the full breadth of services required by the sector including marine and aviation finance expertise: they advise on documentation, transactional and regulatory matters, and regularly work with English and international law firms providing specialist Scottish adviceon asset and invoice finance transactions.
The support teams comprise experts in debt finance, corporate law and restructuring & insolvency.
Beverley is a banking partner based in our Edinburgh office and she manages the Corporate division. She specialises in asset and invoice finance work and acts for various banks and asset finance companies in respect of finance, leasing and asset based lending transactions both north and south of the border.
The Scottish finance market has seen many changes since 2010. Access to funding has changed and there are many new entrants to the market. Our experience means that we understand this and the expectations of finance houses and corporates so we anticipate issues in negotiation before they arise.
Our clients expect us to understand the markets and to offer pragmatic, commercial advice and guidance. We’re also expected to deliver this within tight timeframes and within pre-agreed, fixed fee structures.
We’re specialists with genuine expert knowledge, here to offer valuable advice. Each of the independent legal directories (Chambers and Legal 500) recognises asset & invoice finance as a particular strength of our finance practice.
Our advice is clear and easy to follow. We offer transparent billing, agreeing a fixed fee with our clients, so that they can be reassured that they’ll only pay what they have agreed to pay.
Our approach to fees
Our costs will always be clear and that's guaranteed. We compete comfortably with City of London firms in terms of value for money and quality of work at the costs appropriate to where our offices are. Even in defended litigation recovery work and disputes we do what we can to provide fixed fees at competitive prices.
