Financial Derivatives

Our expert financial derivatives team advises clients on all legal matters relating to the use and trading of financial derivative contracts. Our client base consists of corporates and special purpose entities that are entering into derivatives contracts for the purpose of hedging interest rate, foreign exchange rate and/or other financial risks, banks, investment firms and other sell-side market participants as well as central counterparties.

The dedicated derivatives team has comprehensive experience in tailoring and negotiating widely used derivatives contract documentation, such as the standard documentation from the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA). This experience is combined with an in-depth knowledge of the entire regulatory framework which applies to the use of derivatives, notably consisting of the European Markets Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and the extensive lower rules and regulations adopted to implement EMIR. Through our active membership of ISDA we have access to the vast range of standard documentation published by ISDA and are always on top of the latest developments in the field of financial derivatives.
