Financial Sector

Pace of change, regulation, managing risk – all part of the day to day dynamic of working with our clients in the UK and internationally.
 
We advise on complex corporate deals, regulatory issues, investment fund structures and much more. Our clients include names like Lloyds Banking Group, Standard Life, Alliance Trust, Santander, Aegon, Nucleus, Investec, Aberdeen Asset Management, Guardian, Morgan Stanley, Kames, Scottish Building Society and RBS.
 
For insurers, our work includes advising on major outsourcing contracts and regulatory compliance. And we act on M&A deals, such as Standard Life’s acquisition of Pearson Jones as part of its 1825 advisory proposition.
 
We work with asset managers  on commercial agreements, retail product compliance, data protection, senior level employment issues, platform development and distribution agreements.
 
And we offer market leading finance advice for all types of funders and borrowers in the real estate, leveraged, securitisation and private funds markets.
 
But while managing risk may always be the backdrop, what drives the industry is opportunity. With our City and in-house expertise we bring winning deal savvy skills to the table.
