In an increasingly regulated market and with the constant changes brought about by new technologies, business projects in the financial services sector require specialist legal advice from expert lawyers who understand this new reality. Our Financial Services team follows the market closely and is well-prepared to provide creative and effective customised solutions in order to tackle the changes and challenges faced by our clients.

We advise national and international clients, including many of the leading companies in the sector, regarding a wide range of financial products and services such as:

• Payment services and e-money
• Funds, wealth management and other investment services
•  Private Equity entities and other closed-end investment vehicles
• Credit services and currency exchange
• Insurance and pension funds
• New digital solutions: wallets and other online or mobile payment solutions, crowdfunding, cryptocurrencies, including Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), robo-advisors and other fintech and insurtech businesses

We accompany our clients from the initial stages of the creation and structure of their projects (analysing whether administrative authorisations are needed and advising on how to go about obtaining them) up to their launch (regulatory compliance, preparation of agreements or T&Cs, reviewing the web page and marketing materials, reporting, etc.). We work closely with the supervisory authorities and often with teams and firms in other jurisdictions. Our goal is to give personalised, high-quality advice to our clients. The team is particularly active in advising on cross-border matters (including passporting and notifications at European level, etc.).

Our experience covers ongoing advice on day-to-day matters as well as complex deals and projects. We advise our clients on important regulatory adaptations (MiFID II, PSD2, etc.) or supporting the structuring and execution of transactions, such as sales or business mergers (obtaining regulatory authorisations, analysing the best way of notifying clients and other third parties, negotiating contracts with complex financial components, etc.).

In order to offer our clients well-rounded and comprehensive advice, we work in close collaboration with other teams at the Firm that specialise in the following practice areas related to Financial Services:

• Anti-Money Laundering
• Public and Administrative Law
•  Banking and Finance
• Capital Markets
• Tax
• Data Protection
•   Mergers and acquisitions
• Litigation and Dispute Resolution
