> Banking & Finance

Our Banking and Finance Practice Group provides the highest of legal advice on a wide range of banking and financial services. We understand our clients’ goals and are able to adapt our approach and recommendations, and model innovative arrangements or entire financial structures to obtain optimal solutions.

We provide advice to leading financial institutions on banking issues, capital markets transactions, mergers and acquisitions and securities regulatory matters. We represent a broadly based and diversified number of providers and consumers of credit around the world, advising our clients in complex financing transactions. In light of the unique risk-oriented nature of a financial institution's business and the highly regulated environment in which it operates, we recognise the importance of providing timely and seamless services. No complex financing transaction occurs in isolation. In many cases, complexities will arise due to the structuring of acquisitions, the creation of holding companies, taxation, restructuring and insolvency or real estate issues. We believe in an interdisciplinary team approach to meeting a client's transactional and advisory needs.
