Financial Services Providers

We are Stibbe Financial Services Providers specialists

Our specialists understand the nuances of the financial services industry and its competitive environment, assisting providers in many complex transactions.

Financial Services Providers

We understand the challenges financial services providers face and the legal environment in which they operate. It’s why we work closely with them to provide workable, pragmatic solutions.

Our team has essential knowledge and expertise in this area, regularly assisting with complex licence applications, regulatory and compliance matters, distribution agreements and litigation. We also regularly provide support in negotiations between financial services providers and their clients and principals.

We advise a broad range of clients including insurance brokers, investment firms, payment institutions and trust offices, all of who face increasing regulation and pressure from their clients. We have proven experience in this area, advising on the entire range of legal, regulatory and compliance issues that may arise in the context of transactions or the offering of financial services.

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