We develop relevant and innovative solutions to the challenges that our clients face, helping them to concentrate on their day to day business and succeed in today’s markets.

For example, Margin, poses intricate issues for our clients and we are providing our clients with a seamless combination of innovative technology and traditional legal advice. We are also advising our clients on clearing, U.S. and EU execution platforms and trading requirements, covering EMIR, Dodd-Frank, MiFID and other regulations that have an impact on these markets.

We advise our clients on a wide range of transactions that incorporate traditional derivatives and structured finance structures in bespoke and complex ways relevant to today’s markets and regulatory environment. These include CLOs, commodity structures, equity financings and illiquid asset financings with underlying assets in many jurisdictions across the globe.

We have worked with ISDA for more than 20 years, and our close involvement with other industry bodies, has given us a unique opportunity to participate in the development of the OTC derivatives industry. We translate this into effective, efficient and practical advice to our clients.
