About the Financial Services Regulatory Group

The financial services industry is facing a rapidly changing landscape, an unprecedented role being taken by governments to improve oversight and regulation, and a seemingly ever-expanding labyrinth of legislation and regulations.  This new legal environment has kept regulation at the top of every financial institution’s agenda.  Operating from our offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, the Middle East and Asia, our international financial services regulatory specialists provide legal and regulatory risk advice to banks, savings associations, corporations, mortgage companies, finance companies, credit card issuers, brokers, and asset managers, as well as their directors, officers, and employees, on a broad range of transactions, product development and structuring issues.  The increasingly complex requirements of governments and regulators also impact on governance, risk and accountability, executive compensation practices, tax, and capital requirements.  Our financial services specialists, working with lawyers drawn from our corporate and securities, litigation, tax and benefits groups, are uniquely placed to partner with our clients to help them effectively address these issues.
