Banking law and regulation

With the ever-growing regulation of the financial sector, we have acted as advisers to established financial institutions on highly specialised issues and have helped prospective and new businesses navigate the complex regulatory path to acquiring or establishing banks, e-money or insurers.

We are at our client's side from the earliest stages of market scrutiny to the final stages of meetings with regulators and the start of our clients' business.
