Liz Saxton has more than 25 years of experience advising on a wide range of finance transactions, with a particular focus on UK and cross-border real estate finance.
Liz regularly advises borrowers of all types, including several listed property companies, cutting-edge joint venture structures, and real estate funds, on the full range of their debt financing requirements. These include subscription and equity bridge facilities (both in and outside the real estate sector), facilities for investment and development properties, and corporate-level revolving facilities across all market sectors, including retail, offices, industrial, logistics, and residential. In addition Liz regularly advises on derivative transactions, including those linked to debt facilities and on a stand-alone basis.
Recent notable transactions have included advising LondonMetric Property in connection with a £400 million unsecured revolving credit facility from a club of five lenders coordinated by The Royal Bank of Scotland and advising a joint venture between a UK-based real estate company and a Canadian institutional investor on an acquisition facility used to purchase a portfolio of nine prime logistics assets in the UK for £286 million. She also has advised a newly established real estate fund on a US$250 million subscription-based credit facility provided by Wells Fargo and a UK-listed property company on the innovative hybrid financing of its pan-European portfolio of assets.
