Facilitating finance, mitigating risk
When it comes to getting any major commercial project off the ground, specialist legal advice is not simply a useful add-on – it is an essential ingredient of any successful financing and compliance strategy. A robust legal approach will strike the right balance between financial risk and opportunity, ensure regulatory immunity, and avoid pitfalls long before they become a cause for concern.
It’s no secret that early-stage businesses often require debt and equity financing to support the vital phases of their commercial development. When loans cannot be accessed through traditional bank sources, alternative solutions can be sought through non-bank lenders and investment funds. Without the right seed funding, even the most promising initiatives can fall at the first hurdle.
Businesses starting up and operating in tandem with the financial services sector must also be aware of, and adhere to, a raft of complex regulatory laws. Failure to achieve compliance results not only in financial and operational penalties, but can also have a significant impact on reputation – something which can come with its own knock-on commercial consequences down the line.
