Pikes & Verekers Lawyers’ Finance team provides a personalised and pragmatic commercial approach in many areas of finance including property finance, structured finance, secured and unsecured lending and project financing. 

We give individuals, private companies and financiers astute and practical advice. We have been involved in complex financial transactions (often with a property focus) including the acquisition and construction of commercial buildings, hotels, residential developments, industrial buildings and shopping centres.

    • A major debt restructuring for a construction development group involving the long-term refinancing of facilities of hundreds of millions of dollars.
