In addition to acting for a number of our commercial client banks in their various lending activities - in which capacity we prepare all relevant loan and security documentation - we have acted in various corporate and project finance transactions and syndications.
We have acted for development finance institutions in a number of project finance deals in Kenya where, in addition to preparing and negotiating loan and security documentation, we have been required to harmonise securities so as to take into account multi-jurisdictional conflicts.
You must keep your mind on the objective, not on the obstacle.
From time to time, we find ourselves at the other end of such transactions where we act for the borrower in the negotiations of the various relevant elements. Our work for banks, financial institutions and mortgage finance companies has extended to the preparation of standard/template in-house documents ranging from account-opening forms to facility letters. Lenders have also required us to tailor standard documents to specific housing schemes and other residential and commercial developments. More recently, we have advised on the securitization of non- performing loans of financial institutions-in-Kenya.
