Strategic advice for lenders covering growth plans, regulatory and policy issues and the day-to-day business of customer lending, combined with complex litigation expertise, has brought national recognition for Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ finance team.
The firm’s Finance Group, which advises senior banks, challengers and all types of funds, as well as setting legal precedents on PPI issues affecting the whole industry, was highly commended in the Best Law Firm category in the Mortgage Finance Gazette’s annual awards.
The awards recognise the great and the good within the mortgage sector, and are open to all lenders as well as those who advise or supply them.
The firm’s innovative response to changes in the lending landscape, establishing Finance Generator as its own advisory business bringing finance finding and legal services together, as well as its links with major lenders on both deals and legal strategy, earned its accolade.
Fiona Hayles, head of banking litigation, whose PPI work has both set precedents and informed FCA guidelines, said: “This is great news for the team – it’s a real tribute to our in-depth knowledge of what lenders need and want in a challenging market. We’re a multi-disciplinary team, bringing together finance specialists, transactional banking lawyers and regulatory experts, so that we offer the breadth of expertise and both the contentious and non-contentious experience required.”
