Clients are impressed by our International Financial Services Group’s focus on their business needs and say "they have a great sense of where the market is".
Clients include commercial and investment banks, funds, asset managers, insurers, financial intermediaries, brokers and retail product providers. We advise on multi-jurisdictional disputes, transactions, commercial issues and regulation compliance.
Lawyers from across our European, Middle Eastern and Asian offices share knowhow, best practice and market intelligence to provide a seamless service on cross-border transactions. We have worked on numerous significant multi-country projects, covering competition & EU, regulatory and public policy expertise involving complex issues relating to data protection, security, outsourcing, employment, real estate and taxation law.
Clients benefit from our wide range of transactional experience including general lending, asset financing, project finance (including PPP and PFI transactions), retail finance, real estate finance and restructurings/insolvency.
Our financial services expertise is complemented by our market-leading strength in IT, technology, data protection, intellectual property and e-commerce. This gives us powerful insights into issues arising into outsourcings by regulated institutions and the development of products in the fields of electronic banking and financial services, electronic money and other online payment systems.
