Companies regulated by financial and investment law, parties to complex financing and capital market transactions and (regulated) institutional investors need highly specialised legal and tax advice.
Our “Capital Markets, Banking & Finance” team has great expertise, many years of experience and a profound understanding of the global financial markets.
We are by your side when you are looking for legal advice with regard to financing and capital market transactions, investments in complex investment products, regulatory issues or other aspects of banking, finance and capital markets law. Whether you are a credit institution, financial service provider, investment company, financial investor, (regulated) institutional investor or (listed) company – we always ensure that you reach the best possible solutions.
We can help you to develop your business optimally in compliance with all regulatory requirements, as well as to optimise your debt and equity financing by means of financing and capital market transactions, also in situations where quick action is needed. We assist with the development and design of new, innovative financial products and services and with the structuring, negotiation and documentation of complex national and international financing and capital market transactions, but also with the day-to-day handling of existing financing arrangements. We can advise you with regard to financial restructurings and, working together with our restructuring team, can also provide such advice at the interface to reorganisation and insolvency law. In addition, we can support you when it comes to enforcing your banking and financing law claims in court.
Our lawyers, who are familiar with the legal implementation of all kinds of financing and capital market transactions and with the current market environment and the latest market standards and who have an excellent network of contacts in the financial sector, negotiate the best possible results for you. Our advice is always tailored individually to suit your situation: working together with you, we develop legal strategies and custom-made solutions and structures.
In regulatory proceedings, we represent you and your company before the competent authorities and make all efforts to achieve practicable solutions for the design of your business models – also based on our longstanding, good relations with the regulatory authorities.
In the area of investment funds and asset management, we have great expertise and many years of experience especially in the field of alternative investments, where we advise German and international providers on the issuance and distribution of alternative investment products. In addition, we also use our in-depth knowledge and extensive experience in the field of alternative investments to advise (regulated) institutional investors on a broad range of open-ended and closed-end alternative investments, often with an emphasis on regulatory and tax issues.
As we are a full-service law firm, our advisory services in the area of banking, finance and capital markets law are complemented by integrated tax advice to ensure you benefit from tax privileges. In cases where know-how from other areas of law is needed, we call in our colleagues from the relevant practice areas and industry groups, such as real estate law or M&A and corporate law. In cross-border transactions, we can support and advise you both through our own offices and, in a large number of countries, through our close cooperation with renowned local partner law firms and tax advisors. In such cases, the sole contact responsible for you will always be a lawyer from our “Capital Markets, Banking & Finance” team, who will have responsibility for handling the transaction in order to provide you with a seamless service.
