Our Financial Institutions Group is ranked in The American Lawyer, Chambers USA, Chambers UK, IFLR and SNL Financial and other sources as a leading practice for the financial services industry in the Americas, Europe and Asia.The strength of our practice lies in our deep knowledge of the financial services industry and long experience counseling financial services clients on complex banking, insurance, securities broker-dealer and investment management matters. The Financial Institutions Group provides clients with seamlessly integrated legal counsel across the financial services industry and includes members of many of the firm’s practice groups, such as M&A, capital markets, private equity, hedge funds, project finance, tax, ERISA and litigation, to provide our clients with sophisticated multi-disciplinary representation..

We counsel banks, thrifts, deposit-takers, trusts, insurance and reinsurance firms, asset managers, private and listed funds, brokers, intermediaries and other financial institutions. Our corporate lawyers have significant experience in the establishment and authorization of regulated financial institutions and have represented clients on a broad range of transactional and regulatory compliance issues. Our litigators handle a broad range of complex matters in courts in the United States, United Kingdom, France and elsewhere, as well as before agencies, administrative bodies and arbitration tribunals worldwide.

The Financial Institutions lawyers work across the firm’s eight offices in the United States, Europe and Asia to deliver comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional legal service. Our streamlined approach enables us to advise companies operating at an international level on their cross-border matters.

We have been counseling clients on many aspects of financial services reform, including with respect to the Dodd-Frank Act. Many of our lawyers have previously worked in senior capacities within financial sector regulatory bodies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, Federal Reserve Board, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., US Treasury and the UK Financial Services Authority. Some of our lawyers have worked as in-house counsel for financial institutions, and our litigators include former US and UK Attorneys General and many former US prosecutors. This combined experience provides the Financial Institutions Group with practical knowledge of the regulatory environment and an understanding of how we can serve our clients best.
