Documents & Guidelines
The LMA endeavours to keep its documentation under constant review to ensure that it continues to meet the aims and needs of the primary and secondary loan markets. The production of recommended documentation remains one of our most important activities.
Our documentation is produced after extensive consultation with leading loan practitioners and law firms so as to represent an agreed common view of documentation structures. Standardisation of the "boiler plate" areas of the documents allows lenders and borrowers to focus on the more important commercial aspects of individual transactions.
