The Banking & Finance Law Practice:
Recent years have presented financial markets across the globe with historic challenges. With world markets finally regaining balance, your business needs fresh thinking to help you adjust to the demands of new regulations and political and economic developments.
Known for its analytic rigor, our Banking & Finance team draws on its banking product expertise. We collaborate with all our teams, including our regulatory, dispute resolution and restructuring teams to help you realise your business goals. It’s routine for us to provide clients with innovative, customised solutions: much imitated, our financing techniques have set the standard for the industry.
The largest banks, insurers and financial institutions and their customers in CEE/SEE trust us on issues ranging from commercial lending, project financing and private equity to regulatory work, Medium Term Notes (MTN), Eurobonds, IPOs, takeovers, credit-linked notes, securitisations, de-listings and loan portfolios.
We’re aware that regulatory issues are driving banking and financial markets these days. This is why we’ve made it such a high priority to develop relationships with local regulators, stock exchanges and government officials. We pass the benefits of these relationships on to you as we advise on MiFID II, CRR, payment services, and data protection, EMIR, MAD II, Investment Fund Regimes (UCITS IV, UCITS V) and AIFMD.
