Financial Services

The financial sector has been rapidly changing, with developments driven as much by technological advancements as by shifting consumer trends and legal and regulatory reforms, often with rules that overlap at the local and international levels.

We represent some of the world’s leading financial institutions, including retail and investment banks, insurers, fund-houses, payment service providers, custodians, micro-lenders, wealth and asset management companies, e-trading platforms, and digital finance innovators.

Our financial services team advises on the full spectrum of regulatory and compliance matters, including licensing and formation of financial entities and review of compliance programs, such as anti-money laundering and anti-corruption programs. We also assist clients in structuring and licensing new financial products, outsourcing and distribution, corporate governance, internal controls and data and cyber protection. Our experience also includes representing clients in administrative proceedings arising from regulatory infringements, enforcement investigations, fraud charges, and financial product disputes.

We have long-standing relationships with regulatory agencies and often guide sector associations and other stakeholders in adapting to emerging regulatory and market trends. We have a deep understanding of the industry, built over decades of experience, which we leverage to help clients attain their commercial objectives while ensuring ongoing compliance and risk minimization.
