POELLATH provides comprehensive advice on financing, with a focus on acquisition, real estate and corporate financing.

Our service includes legal and tax advice on structuring of the financing. We draft and negotiate the financing documentation (term sheet, facility agreement and security agreements). At the same time, we provide support regarding fulfillment of conditions precedent. Your transaction receives our full attention. With us you have a fixed contact person from start to finish. After completion of the transaction, we continue to support you on questions regarding financing documentation.

Banks, credit funds and sponsors trust our solutions and our expertise in the area of structured financing, as do listed and medium-sized companies. We advise borrowers and lenders on all contractual, regulatory and tax-related financing issues.
