Regulation and Compliance
Knowledge and capability
Our experienced teams have extensive local and international financial services and banking sector knowledge, meeting the need for greater transparency in a more globalised and complex world.
Our approach to compliance is not simply meeting regulatory requirements. In line with our flexible resource model, we are able to target known critical compliance gaps and provide solutions to ongoing regulatory challenges, while carrying out complete risk assessments of your current governance frameworks.
Regulatory frameworks are constantly evolving across sectors and around the world. As transparency rises in importance and the costs of non-compliance with laws and regulations increase, businesses everywhere strive to adapt to the growing pressure from regulatory bodies. We can help.
With our extensive knowledge of local regulations and our multi-jurisdictional capabilities, we are well-positioned to help clients around the world deal effectively and creatively with regulatory and compliance issues. As business has globalised and cross-border transactions have become more complex, our ability to provide appropriate counsel and support across jurisdictions has become all the more important.
Our clients come to us to understand their responsibilities, manage risk and lessen the impact of complex regulatory regimes on their transactions or day-to-day operations. Our strong relationships with members of oversight agencies and regulators give us the basis to counsel and support clients from a current and fully informed perspective.
We commit our global resources to helping them meet regulatory requirements and keep their businesses running smoothly, no matter where they are based.
We have extensive experience in banking and financial services where we advise on all aspects of regulatory compliance and contentious issues involving the banking, capital markets and investment fund sectors. Our objective is to create sophisticated strategies that safeguard our clients’ assets and reputations and enable them to concentrate on pursuing their business objectives with confidence. This is helped by the substantive involvement we have had in the development and implementation of current US, UK and EU legislation and related guidance.
