Banks

Our lawyers are experts in the financial services industry and are familiar with, and sensitive to, the competitive environment in which our clients operate, including major banks and international financial institutions.

We specialise in understanding our clients’ businesses and their commercial objectives, aligning these objectives with legal and regulatory requirements. In addition to this expertise, we also provide valuable assistance in services and the early stages of product development, marketing and distribution of financial products.

By actively cooperating with the commercial, legal and compliance professionals of our clients, we create practical and workable solutions to a broad range of legal and compliance related issues, ensuring our client's products and services work.

Our practice is cross-border as we advise on harmonised EU financial services legislation, the footprint of which is increasing rapidly. We also assist with market entry of institutions in foreign jurisdictions, and vice versa.

Furthermore, we have experience advising on, preparing for and responding to, regulatory investigations and other stages of threatened or actual enforcement. Where supervision shifts from a national to a EU level, our experts also assist on cross-border supervision issues involving the EU regulatory authorities.
