Lawrence Stephens advises Blue Shield Capital on complex bridging loan

March 2024

Lawrence Stephens’ Banking and Real Estate Finance teams recently advised Blue Shield Capital on a 12-month bridging loan in a complicated deal structure which involved a high amount of property due diligence, multiple contemplated changes in deal structure and complex legal issues that required multi-disciplinary support from the LS team.  

The £3.4 million loan facilitates the purchase of a portfolio of 18 flats across Wembley and Harrow. The Lawrence Stephens and Blue Shield Capital teams worked seamlessly together to secure a successful completion for the client.

The team from Lawrence Stephens was led by Director and Head of Banking, Ajoy Bose-Mallick on the banking & finance aspects and Senior Associate Rachel Coulthard on the real estate finance side. They received crucial assistance from a cross-departmental team including Director Gregory Palos, Senior Associates Ashley Wright and Abtin Yeganeh, Solicitor Bola Kim, and Trainee Solicitors Electra Kallidou, Sophie Morton and Alex Ruder.

Ajoy commented: “As always, it was a pleasure to work with the stellar team at Blue Shield Capital to complete this complicated transaction for the client, which makes an exciting addition to their real estate financing loan book.”
