Banking & Finance

Whatever your banking needs, you're in good hands with us

Banks and financial market participants have served as the first point of call for capital since forever. In so doing, they interact on a daily basis not only with consumer and corporate clients but also with the state’s supervisory authorities. Precisely because this network of addressees is so wide-ranging, a broad range of legal know-how is essential. Thanks to our interdisciplinary team, we cover the entire gamut of legal fields and offer risk-appropriate and solution-oriented advice right at the interface between public law and general civil law.

Using the long-standing experience we have gained in countless court and arbitration proceedings, we represent you professionally and fastidiously when it comes to putting forward and challenging claims, covering the entire process from the correspondence ahead of the trial to the legally effective conclusion of the procedure. In addition, we provide ongoing advice in the structuring of national and international financing facilities, including complex syndicated loans.

New laws and regulations also make constant adjustment necessary. We provide comprehensive advice for the development and adaptation of existing contract templates and internal rules and the structuring of new products and preparation of the required prospectuses. More than never before, our focus is on ESG-related and green facilities and investments. In future, the impact of ESG and compliance will not only be felt at product level but specifically also inform supervisory law. We provide clients with ongoing advice in all issues regarding prudential law and support them expertly in satisfying any new, supervisory requirements.
