We advise companies and financial institutions whose main commercial activity is providing services in the highly regulated financial services sector.
Our services include:

  • Outsourcing arrangements
  • IT and telecoms infrastructure and contracts
  • Financial disputes
  • Restructuring, insolvency and turnaround of distressed organisations
  • Employment matters

Businesses which are specifically regulated, like financial services businesses, like to keep track of where their assets are. These could be information-based assets or technology-based assets, with this increasingly carried out through outsourcing and the rise of cloud-based infrastructure. We can help clients with both cross-border and country-specific deals. We’ve got good local experience in all the relevant countries and we have lawyers who are used to working together across our European and international network.

Our financial services disputes team has experience of working with leading institutions in complex, high-value disputes in both national courts and also before international arbitration tribunals across Europe and beyond. We also advise on the restructuring, insolvency and turnaround of distressed organisations in which institutions have a corporate or financial interest.
