BANKING AND FINANCIAL
Australia's banking and finance sector continues to experience sustained growth. With that growth has come increased sophistication and complexity.
Recently, this complexity has included increased competition from foreign banks and financial institutions, the implementation of new capital adequacy and risk management systems. Within this new environment, banks and financial services organisations are under increasing pressure to deliver greater efficiencies and improved results.
Oakley Thompson & Co's banking and financial services team works on behalf of some of Australia's leading local retail and investment banks, financial institutions, fund managers and multinational corporations.
Leading the team are partners with significant expertise in corporate and commercial lending and retail banking. All our key team members have an excellent understanding of finance law throughout the Australasian region, significantly enhancing communication and efficiency on cross-border transactions.
Our long-standing involvement in the banking and finance sector means we often understand the history behind commercial decisions, as well as the compliance and regulatory issues that drove those decisions. This knowledge can help provide us in providing clients with specific and important insights.

- acquisition and property finance
- syndicated lending transactions
- structured finance and securitisation
- asset finance, leasing and other tax based financings
