We advise clients on the full range of transactional and regulatory matters based on our deep expertise and broad experience in the financial services industry, and our strong emphasis on client-oriented service produces superior results in dispute resolution.

Financial institutions are highly regulated from their establishment to daily business activities, and navigating the complex regulatory landscape can be challenging. BKL’s Finance Group advises a broad spectrum of global financial institution clients, including financial holding companies, banks, financial investment companies (such as securities companies and asset management companies), specialized credit financing companies and insurance companies, on both transactional and regulatory matters in all areas pertinent to financial institutions, including financial transactions, procurement of licenses and approvals, registrations, regulatory oversight, internal compliance, response to inspections and investigations, and mergers and acquisitions. We actively monitor the regulatory environment and latest developments in the financial services industry in order to adapt and provide preemptive solutions tailored for each client.

When it comes to legal advice related to financial institutions, it is important to understand not only the applicable laws and regulations but also the nature of the specific industry and the regulatory hurdles clients face.
