Financial institutions are increasingly operating in a rapidly changing and evolving environment. Following the global financial crisis, regulators are focused on proactively developing regulation to ensure oversight and supervision is increased and improved to both govern conduct and ultimately protect the consumer.
As a result the regulatory landscape has been fundamentally impacted and regulated businesses are constantly having to ensure that they are adapting appropriately and keeping abreast of these continuous developments.
Our financial services & regulation team works with financial services clients to deliver creative and practical solutions on all aspects of their regulation and compliance matters. Our team represents a mix of domestic and international lenders and borrowers, including major banks, senior lenders, mezzanine lenders, hedge funds, developers, and investment services on a range of financing matters.
The team brings together lawyers specialising in different areas of the financial services and regulatory sector. We advise on everything from acquisition financing and debt restructuring to loan portfolio financing and financial regulation. We have particular expertise in managing complex, large scale client assignments and are known for our ability to create project management solutions. For example, managing significant projects in relation to the acquisition and disposal of loan portfolios.
As part of a full service firm, we draw on the skills and technical knowledge of lawyers from other parts of the firm including commercial property, construction, private equity, insolvency, corporate, and litigation enhancing its ability to deliver practical and commercial solutions to clients.
