Trusted advisor to the world’s leading banks and other financial institutions


The industry is in a period of transition with banks and financial institutions grappling with regulatory change, stringent capital requirements, evolving risk and technology challenges and a low interest rate environment.



We help clients make sense of this to navigate some of the most pertinent issues faced in this increasingly dynamic and competitive industry. By developing a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and their key strategic drivers we provide practical and relevant advice.

Our experts work with the world’s leading finance providers, insurers, asset managers and many other financial market participants on capital and liquidity management, changing regulation, cost reduction and risk management.

As trusted advisors we also support our clients on a range of multi-jurisdictional matters, and strategic and board-level projects, as well as advising them through litigation, partnership issues and employment disputes.
