Blake Morgan, a leading law firm with roots in the South region, has been shortlisted in the Deal of the Year Award at the Insider South East Dealmakers Awards 2024.
The shortlisted deal was a £26m sustainability linked loan from HSBC to Shoreham Port Authority. Blake Morgan Legal Director, Jake Holmes, led on the deal and acted for HSBC’s South East Corporate Banking team, putting in place the sizeable debt package.
This deal demonstrates Shoreham’s commitment to its environmental and sustainability strategy and showcases HSBC’s willingness to support sustainable finance to local businesses in the South East.
Jake Holmes commented:
It is great that this deal has been shortlisted for an award. I want to thank everyone involved; it was a tremendous effort. It is something we are proud to have worked hard on to get over the line. The sustainability linked loan facilities from HSBC will enable Shoreham to meet its environmental targets on waste and emission reduction and its regional economic objectives around training development and educational placements.
Along with Jake, the Blake Morgan team included Lauren Green and Jodie Craven from the Banking & Finance Group as well as Michael Ward and James Boschat from the Real Estate Group.
The Insider South East Dealmakers Awards will take place at Lingfield Racecourse on 8 February 2024. The awards celebrate the success and recognise the achievements of the professional advisers supporting businesses across the South East.
