Are you a Bank or Financier?
As a financier are you sick of receiving a fee estimate, only to have it substantially exceeded? Do you receive no cost benefit on matters notwithstanding you have used the same lawyers for the same types of transactions time after time? Do the “B” and “C” teams of a larger firm do your work? Do you question why 3 lawyers attend the one meeting when you only needed 1 good one?
We’re different. Independent Legal specialises in banking and finance and have acted for most Australian financiers. We offer big firm skills without the excessive billing practices. We are commercial and relationship driven.
Are you a Borrower ?
Banking and Finance is a specialised area. Most banks have predominantly large national or international firms acting for them making it difficult for lawyers not specialised in this field to negotiate well on behalf of their clients.
As the Independent Legal team have acted for a wide range of banks and financiers, we are very familiar with the standard documentation of banks and financiers and know which areas can and should be negotiated. We focus on commercial and practical advice.
Are you seeking Independent Legal Advice?
Independent legal advice, also known as Guarantor advice is becoming a greater requirement of financiers in the Corporate, Commercial and Retail banking sectors. Financiers need to be sure the advice is independent and adequate. Our experience in acting for many different banks and financiers across all Australian jurisdictions ensures the advice is not only adequate, but also compliant with the legal profession rules, specific and customised to the deal, the customer and the jurisdiction.
We offer fixed fee services and can provide independent legal advice to a Borrower or a Guarantor in or out of standard business hours and 7 days a week if required.
