Legal advice for the financial institutions sector
The financial institutions sector operates against a backdrop of rapid development, managed risk, stringent regulation and fluctuating economic conditions. The sector is coming under ever-increasing scrutiny and the operating environment remains pressured. Financial transactions are increasingly global with the need for institutions to operate across competitive international markets.
With business models being tested, the need to mitigate risk and adapt to changing market conditions is paramount. Businesses require their advisers to combine technical expertise with market insight and experience.
