Financial services – integrated global advice for financial institutions
Our market-leading financial services practice provides integrated advice to leading financial institutions in the world’s major business and financial hubs.
We help them navigate business-critical legal and regulatory challenges posed by transformative transactions, franchise-threatening investigations and litigation, or major policy change.
We act for banks, broker-dealers, asset and investment managers, financial sponsors, sovereign wealth funds, insurers, brokers, market infrastructure providers, payment providers, fintech firms and central banks.
Our multidisciplinary global team combines deep knowledge and experience of the financial services industry and regulatory authorities with specialist expertise in public and private M&A transactions, financial services regulation, antitrust, employment law, litigation, tax and criminal, regulatory and internal investigations and restructuring and insolvency. Our ongoing engagement with regulators and central banks means we have an unrivalled understanding of the regulatory environment in which our clients operate.
Our recent work spans many of the most important transactions in the sector, transformational Brexit-related matters, regulatory capital and recovery and resolution planning, and sustainable finance mandates. We advise on major regulatory and internal investigations and litigation concerning issues including market conduct, AML and financial crime, data and resilience, the impacts of COVID-19, and product design and sales processes in the retail financial services sector.
