Financial Services

Helping financial institutions to navigate changing regulation

The global financial crisis sent shockwaves through the world’s financial institutions and was the catalyst for major reforms to the banking and financial services sector. While conditions have stabilised somewhat, markets remain fickle and these institutions are now adjusting to an increasingly regulated and competitive environment. Add to this an overlay of technology, innovation and increased pressure on costs, and you have an industry that is being transformed across the world.

In times of crisis and in times of prosperity, our ability to create a clear path through this dynamic and complex sector will enable you to focus on running your business and minimise regulatory surprises.

Our multi-disciplinary Financial Institutions team pulls together finance skills, industry insights and serious business acumen. Tactically astute where necessary and strategic by nature, our goal is always the success of our clients.

"Long-standing, excellent reputation advising major domestic and foreign banks and corporates on the full spectrum of financial services matters. Expertise with respect to global derivatives law reform, and compliance with Basel III rules."
