Lisa Harrison, Senior Associate, Finance
I am a senior associate in the finance group. I qualified as a solicitor in Australia in April 2010.
I act for a wide variety of lenders and borrowers, advising on financial and security arrangements with particular expertise in real estate finance, tech finance, development finance and acquisition finance.
Some examples of transactions in which I was involved recently include:
- Advising a large borrower group specialising in aged care in connection with a £77,000,000 joint acquisition by a US based healthcare REIT and a Canadian based aged care operator
- Advising a lender in connection with a £155,000,000 acquisition of a large commercial property in central London
- Advising a lender in connection with the £13,500,000 management buyout of a large borrower group specialising in talent management
- Advising a lender in connection with the refinancing of a multi-let retail warehouse scheme in the UK (originally acquired by the borrower for around £95,000,000)
I also frequently contribute to the group's quarterly bulletin, The Wealth Finance Brief and most recently have written articles in relation to taking security over intellectual property and lending to law firms.
In my spare time I practice a variety of sports with particular focus on muay thai. I also enjoy travelling and in particular exploring the more remote parts of our beautiful planet.
