Middletons Lawyers acted for GE Commercial Finance in a rapid refinancing arrangement whereby Strathfield Group Ltd (Strathfield) entered into a three-year revolving credit facility with GE Commercial Finance. Middletons said the facility offered competitive pricing and the flexibility to meet Strathfield’s short-term and medium-term funding requirements while taking into account the seasonal nature of Strathfield’s retail business. Dina Glass, in the firm’s banking & finance group, was the lead partner on the deal.

Baker & McKenzies banking and finance group acted for Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) on its HK$8 ($1.4) billion multi-tranche credit facilities, which were signed on 28 September. The law firm drafted the loan agreement and the associated legal documentation. The deal was self-arranged by KCRC with 18 banks. Partner Stephen Eno, based in Bakers’ Hong Kong office, led the team acting for KCRC.
