Our work for financial institutions is at the heart of our practice.
We have a long track record of advising financial services companies internationally, serving clients that span leading retail and investment banks, asset managers, hedge funds and insurance companies. We have formed a dedicated Financial Institutions Group, a specialist, cross-departmental team focused on advising financial institutions on strategic transactions.
The group comprises lawyers specialised in mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, banking & finance, financial regulatory, tax, outsourcing and antitrust. The group’s market knowledge and leading regulatory and transactional skills ensure the optimum solution for complex transactions. The group advises on many of the most significant international, cross-border and domestic mergers and acquisitions, public takeovers and privately negotiated sales and purchases involving financial institutions across the world.
