GRATA International's Banking & Finance team is one of the largest teams in the Eurasian region and leading in the areas of financings, syndicated lending, project finance, debt capital markets and other types of financings.
GI's rapidly growing Banking & Finance practice currently comprises over 40 lawyers, many with second law degrees from the UK, USA or other leading western universities. Our lawyers are based in GI offices in more than 20 jurisdictions.
Behind us are years of experience of acting for lenders and borrowers in the CIS markets. We are equally familiar with the lender's and borrower's counsel roles and know what the most heavily negotiated issues are and where the compromise may be available. We are well-positioned to know what is “market” with respect to commitment packages, covenants, intercreditor terms, collateral arrangements, and other financing terms. We use this knowledge to negotiate documentation efficiently on behalf of our clients to address their needs and goals.
Our aim is to become the leading finance practice in the legal market of the Eurasian region. This means, inter alia, that our Banking & Finance group aims to set new high standards for the legal support in the banking sector and capital markets, to monitor the needs of our clients and to provide them with individual legal solutions in order to help them carve out a leading market niche.
The ability to provide legal services at the best value and our understanding of the local cultures of the states of the Eurasian region are some of our strengths.
We are proud that our clients, which are some of the largest local and international banks and companies from different industry sectors, have trusted in GRATA International knowledge and more than 30 years of experience.
GI's Banking & Finance practice has established effective cooperation with financial regulators across the region, as well as with local and international stock exchanges, investment banks, international law firms, and advisors. This allows us to provide our clients with best-in-class solutions for their needs.
