FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
The financial institutions sector has been transformed since the global financial crisis of 2008.
Determined to resolve the implicit guarantee of tax payer underwriting, regulators and law makers have passed and continue to enact regulations and laws that have shaken up the sector, particularly in US and Europe. Many financial institutions are still working through these changes as the effect of ring-fencing, capital and liquidity requirements, and total loss absorption capacity become a practical reality. We provide financial institutions with sector-specific, pragmatic advice on tax structuring, M&A and joint ventures, intellectual property protection, IT, outsourcing, real estate portfolio management, global and local employment, compensation schemes and pensions, regulatory compliance, investigations, financial crimes and dispute resolution. Our deep roots in all major financial centers and extensive coverage of other markets in Asia, Africa, Latin America, CIS and CEE enable us to provide a global, integrated and cost-effective service.
