By virtue of the types of financial services our client institutions provide to customers ranging from individuals to professional investors and the client-facing nature of these services, they are often on the receiving end of unexpected events and trouble. In this series that is designed specifically for financial services institutions, our group of cross-practice experts explore the risks financial institutions face in their day-to-day operations and give practical guidance on what they need to know to protect their interests. The topics that will be covered in the series include (i) injunctions and other ancillary third party orders, (ii) the Quincecare duty of care imposed on a bank to its customer, (iii) privilege issues and what in-house counsel need to know, (iv) whether banks can keep a secret when faced with investigations, and (v) dealing with dawn raids and cyber fraud.
