Banking

Boughton Law’s Banking Practice Group advises both lenders and borrowers on the full spectrum of commercial lending.

Areas of Expertise

We understand the tight timelines and cost pressure lenders operate under. Hence, every transaction we handle is guided by two principles: securing the lender and getting the deal done. You can rely on our expertise regarding all types of secured financing arrangements so you can provide your clients with the financing they need in the time frame that they require.

Lenders, including some of Canada’s leading banks and credit unions, life insurance companies, pension funds, trust companies, government lenders, public and private corporations, as well as individual lenders have been working with our lawyers in the areas of:

  • Corporate lending
  • Working capital loans / capital loans
  • Project financing / independent power projects
  • Mortgage / real estate financing
  • Mezzanine financing
  • Construction financing
  • Acquisition financing
  • Aboriginal lending
  • Ship and aircraft financing

When representing borrowers we put an emphasis on working closely with the lender’s legal counsel. This is crucial for finding creative solutions that will give you the much needed flexibility while satisfying the lender’s requirement for security.

Your Benefits

For transactions and financings that involve other jurisdictions in or outside of Canada, our affiliation with the Meritas network enables you access to legal counsel around the world. Business law firms in over 80 countries are at your disposal while our team coordinates the relationship for a uninterrupted service experience.

As banking matters can increase in complexity when multiple stakeholders are involved, an interdisciplinary team is important to advise clients on any issues that may arise. At Boughton Law we can draw from resources within our Business, Insolvency, Tax, Real Estate and Aboriginal Practice Groups to deliver a seamless service.
