Bermuda companies are commonly used in a broad range of sophisticated banking and finance transactions as a result of Bermuda’s well-regarded regulatory environment, political stability and progressive economy. Wakefield Quin regularly advises leading international financial institutions, funds and other investors on syndicated and non-syndicated credit facilities and security arrangements in the areas of project and asset finance, property financing and general corporate banking. Our lawyers have extensive experience drafting loan, security, priority, subordination and inter-creditor agreements, as well as rendering transactional and considered legal opinions and securing priority ranking of security over Bermuda assets and security granted by Bermuda entities.
We advise on ISDA, GMRA and GMSLA documentation. We assist banks, prime brokers and funds on local licensing, registration, netting and collateral issues related to credit and equity derivative transactions, securities lending agreements and prime brokerage structures with Bermuda counterparties.
