What our clients and peers say

Worldwide research publication Legal 500 recommends our banking and finance work:

Ledingham Chalmers LLP’s presence in the North East of Scotland, allied to its extensive knowledge of the maritime and oil and gas services markets, sees it act for some of the most active lenders in secured and unsecured financing or refinancing transactions. In addition, the firm covers a wide range of general banking matters for corporate borrowers. In Inverness, the team is active in assisting economic development agencies, such as Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, with providing financing to private sector businesses. Jody Mitchell was the lead adviser to Grampian Property Group on the provision of financing by Royal Bank of Scotland for property development. Another highlight involved acting for Solstad Offshore UK on the UK-wide aspects of a group refinancing.
