Financial Institutions
Powerful forces are redefining the financial industry.  Regulatory, technology, demographics and economics are converging and forcing financial service providers to change, innovate and adapt in developing and distributing new products and services faster and cheaper.

Our clients look to rely on our attorneys for their comprehensive experience advising a broad range of financial institutions.  We represent large, regional, foreign, commercial and retail banks, full-service national and international brokerage firms, electronic broker dealers, research boutiques, investment advisors, transfer agents, investment banks, asset managers, private equity firms, hedge funds, foreign investors, options execution firms and direct access firms.

We offer our financial industry clients in-depth industry knowledge and technical experience as our group includes both private practitioners and former SEC attorneys. We cover the credit, banking and payments markets, advising on local and multijurisdictional regulation, product development and distribution, documentation, establishment of lending and banking businesses.  This is in addition to developing financial services, firm structures, governance, capitalization, and financing and commercial agreements.
