The financial services sector sits at the heart of domestic and international markets and politics. World financial markets are increasingly connected, interdependent and sensitive, a fact highlighted in recent years by the global financial recession and underlined by the ongoing challenges for firms, governments and regions seeking to stabilise and grow in a constantly evolving environment.
Financial services firms, their clients, and those whose dealings bring them into contact with the sector, face a number of operational, regulatory and market challenges. The support of independent sector-driven, responsive, commercial and pragmatic legal professionals is crucial for those seeking to succeed in such a competitive environment. This extends beyond the traditional service requirement of advice and representation connected to direct contentious and regulatory issues, to ongoing strategic and tactical input relevant to firms’ operations, risk and market considerations, and the courage to challenge a firm’s plans and convictions from a technical and commercial legal perspective.
Our financial services group draws together a group of experienced and multi-disciplinary teams that provide contentious and non-contentious advice and support to the financial services sector. Drawing upon our deep sector knowledge and understanding, we advise across the broad range of our clients’ legal requirements with the empathy, commerciality and collaboration required to provide cost-effective solutions to the broad range of our clients’ challenges, whether simple or complex, short or long term.
