Derivatives and Structured Finance

Our derivatives and structured finance practice is one of the largest and most integrated derivatives and structured finance teams in the industry, renowned in the market for being innovative and commercially aware of the latest market developments.

Our advisory and transactional work covers all the major product types (exchange-traded or centrally cleared, OTC and securities) and all the underlying asset classes (currency, credit, equity, interest rate, commodity, energy, property, weather, fund, inflation).

More generally, we advise most of the financial institutions active in the market on the full range of product wrappers (including structured notes, certificates, warrants and funds) and underlyings (including equities, credit, commodities, FX, funds, indices and proprietary trading strategies). We advise on flow and highly bespoke structured products and are at the forefront of product development and regulatory and tax issues. More recently we have been involved with the developments on OTC clearing, advising on the relevant rules and procedures and on the impact the Dodd-Frank Act and proposed European derivatives legislation could have on clearing procedures.

Our role as European, Hong Kong and U.S. counsel to the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc (ISDA) for many years, as well as our participation in other industry bodies means that we are at the forefront of the latest legal, regulatory and documentary developments and innovations in the marketplace. This ensures that we are up to speed with all relevant ISDA documentation and can deal with any ISDA-related queries or concerns our clients may have quicker and more efficiently than most of our competitors.
