Securities Finance & Short-term Credit Markets
Our prime brokerage, margin finance and repo practice is one of the leading practices in the market. We advise on all repo, stock loan and other securities finance transactions, including credit intermediation, collateral arrangements, custody and client money issues, and all prime brokerage matters for both buy and sell side clients. Our partners have been present in the UK market since its early days and have built and managed prime brokerage legal teams at the leading prime brokers, including Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse. As a result, many of the documents routinely used in the market continue to contain language originally drafted by our partners. Our partners are also used as experts on prime brokerage and securities lending for high-value disputes in the High Court.
