Why Lawyers Need To Use Riordan Capital

At Riordan Capital, we:

  • Properly assess your needs – We believe in transparency in both sides of the relationship. The more you tell us about yourself and your financial objectives, the more likely we will be able to find you a loan that fits with your unique situation. As Chester Porter QC said, “In order to advance a cause honestly and efficiently, it is first necessary to ascertain the facts.”
  • Calculate your borrowing power – Transparency doesn’t end with the assessment of your needs. We like you to be fully frank about the performance of your practice, lifestyle, financial goals and spending habits. The better the picture we have of your financial circumstances, the better we can structure your finance arrangements.
  • Compare your options – With so many lenders in the market today, it can be difficult to make an efficient comparison of all the finance options available. Riordan Capital will consider what you can afford to borrow and repay, and find lenders from their panel of lenders that offer products and features that suit your needs. We will then narrow down those lenders that are most suited to your unique situation, including those that offer specialist business and personal packages for legal professionals.
  • Give a recommendation – We know our clients. It is a relationship built on trust and confidence. It is not just about finding the cheapest interest rate and recommending that product. It is about finding a solution that will suit your needs and objectives over the long term.
  • Prepare your approval application – Many lawyers today are time poor. Form filling can be tedious at best. We will properly advise you of the documents you need, prepare the application for you, keep you and your advisors informed of steps along the way, and liaise with the lender on your behalf. If the application is approved, we will also keep an eye on the settlement process to ensure your loan is finalised smoothly and efficiently.
  • Stay in touch – The relationship doesn’t end once your finance is in place. We understand that circumstances can change. That is why Riordan Capital will keep in contact with you. We want to make sure you stay abreast of new products and offerings, as well as changes in the loan market.
