Financial services and investment funds
The global financial crisis has prompted regulatory change on an unprecedented scale. Our Italian financial services and investment funds team advises a number of prominent financial institutions on the impact of these changes and the compliance with both domestic and international regulation.
Working alongside our specialist financial services and investment funds lawyers across the globe, we can provide cross-border transactional and compliance advice throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Central Asia.
We deliver advice to some of the largest Italian, European and US financial institutions on how to structure their businesses in the most efficient way, as well as on minimising regulatory burdens whilst complying with relevant Italian and EU laws and regulations. We also have direct experience of working with the Italian Financial Services Authorities.
