Banking & Finance

At Pigott Stinson we give legal advice you can bank on

We make sure that your interests either as a borrower or a lender are protected.

Our financial services team advise both lenders and borrowers participating in a wide variety of financing transactions.

Lender clients include banks, finance companies, brokers and leasing companies, equipment vendors and goods suppliers, high net worth individuals and registered clubs. Borrower clients include small and large private companies, registered clubs and private individuals.

Whilst we adopt a practical, business–like approach to our work we also bring a strong technical focus to the solution of clients’ problems. This focus is complemented by a wide commercial experience in, and comprehensive understanding of, relevant issues in property law, Corporations law, and revenue and commercial law generally.

In particular, we offer a range of services to assist clients coming to grips with the dramatic changes affecting all business transactions by the Personal Property and Securities Act (PPSA). The new Act has transformed the law and practice for secured financing involving personal property.  We offer free seminars and/or group or private briefings to acquaint clients with the risks inherent in the PPSA.

Our team can help you with:

  • providing or obtaining finance through conventional secured or unsecured loans
  • construction and development security transactions
  • asset-based funding
  • factoring and discounting transactions
  • lines of credit and loan syndications as well as trade finance facilities
  • recovery of loans
  • restructuring the affairs of distressed borrowers, including avoiding bankruptcy and/or insolvency
  • Self managed superannuation funds
