  • Members Negotiating with Your Bank
     1 April 2020
     4:00 pm - 5:00 pm






This is the second in our series of COVID-19 Support Events which are FREE for WeDO Scotland members and will be taking place twice weekly in addition to our weekly Brainstorming meetings every Monday at 11am.

For some of our members, this will be the first time they find themselves in a situation of having to negotiate with their banks.  Since the financial crash, banks have become increasingly risk-averse and whilst the CBILS & CCFF support from the Government are deemed to be positive, some are finding it challenging to obtain the funding they require. 

We’re delighted to have Grant Docherty, Banking & Finance and Debt Restructuring Partner at Rooney Nimmo.  Our thanks to him for kindly giving his time and sharing his expertise with us which we know will be invaluable.


Grant Docherty is an experienced banking lawyer who has significant experience representing lenders and borrowers across numerous sectors.

He has represented banks, financial institutions, corporate borrowers and financial services and banking regulators based in the UK, US, Hong Kong, and China.

Specific areas of interest for him are real estate finance (investment, development and structured financings), leveraged acquisition finance (in relation to the funding of corporate acquisitions, MBOs and MBIs), renewables finance (in particular wind farms), project finance (including infrastructure projects), large corporate financings (usually via international jurisdictions) and asset finance (including ship and aircraft finance). Grant also has significant experience in debt restructuring, gained while working in Hong Kong during the Asian financial crisis and, more recently, in the UK during the financial crisis of 2008 and beyond.
