Liam Doughty Ranked in Chambers 2022 logo        Legal 500 2022 Recommended Lawyer


I am a partner specialising in banking and finance. I offer technically sound and commercially focused advice to corporates, banks and other creditors on bilateral and syndicated debt finance transactions across the credit spectrum, including:

  • real estate investment and development financings;
  • leveraged and acquisition financings, recapitalisations and restructurings; and
  • asset, working capital and cashflow financings.

I also deal with loan servicing and general corporate banking work and can advise on a wide range of debt facilities, security structures and intercreditor arrangements at all layers of the capital stack.

I studied law at the University of Southampton and the National University of Singapore, graduating with first class honours. He completed the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law (Guildford) with a distinction.

Liam is helpful, available and nothing is ever too much trouble and he aims to provide solutions that are sensible to both the borrower and lender. Liam and Paris Smith have formed a great partnership with PCF Bank Ltd and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone and I often do. Without the assistance of Paris Smith the success of the PCF Bank bridging position would not have been as successful as it has been.

Paris Smith have been a Panel Solicitor of InterBay Commercial for 13 years. Given the complex, specialist nature of our lending, there have been many transactions where Liam’s advice and expertise has been sought. Liam is professional, knowledgeable and very thorough and I know I can trust him to provide sensible, accurate and practical advice. He is commercially minded and proactive in finding a way to get a transaction done within the desired timeframe, often going beyond expectations.
