    Banking & Finance

    Wistrand assists Swedish and international commercial banks, investment banks, corporates, funds and other institutions with expert advice, documentation and negotiations with a large variety of matters, including: 

    • Swedish and international bonds and notes issues 
    • Syndicated and bilateral loans 
    • Export finance 
    • Project finance (including real estate and shipping)  
    • Acquisition finance 
    • Leasing 
    • Insolvency refinancing and reconstruction 
    • Related regulatory matters.
     
    Our banking and finance specialists have substantial experience of various security arrangements (pledges, security assignments etc.) and the ensuing Swedish perfection issues, which are often complex. When necessary, they have ready access to some of Sweden's foremost insolvency experts who practice at Wistrand. 
     
    Wistrand frequently issues legal opinions, as part of the work performed in transactions as well as under separate instructions. 
     
    For many years, we have worked with derivatives and are familiar not only with plain vanilla interest and currency swaps but also with advanced products, such as credit derivatives. Wistrand is responsible for issuing and up-dating the ISDA netting opinion for Sweden. Naturally, we also advise on repos and securities lending.
