Working with banks

We aim to be the trusted adviser that our bank clients turn to first - whether this be to discuss a strategically important acquisition, what is "market" when it comes to financing structures, disputes and investigations, fintech strategies, or regulatory hurdles on the horizon.

We recognise that being a trusted adviser also involves us providing excellent service to support your "business as usual" needs.

How do we do all this? By listening to you and understanding your particular needs and objectives, and then bringing the best of our expertise to meet them.

Supporting your business globally

As global advisers to the bank industry we can support your business wherever it may be.

We have offices and industry experts in the world's key financial centres and in other strategic commercial locations to support major international and domestic bank clients.

Commercial insight

We invest time in understanding your commercial objectives and the pressures you face. Our relationships are underpinned by regular engagement and interaction on current issues and emerging trends.

Many of our experts have valuable insights gained by working for banks and financial regulators, or spending time on secondment.

Market-leading expertise

The spectrum of advice we offer is broad: from M&A to regulation; fintech to bespoke financing structures; competition investigations to disputes. We apply our knowledge and expertise to both your large scale strategic matters and your client transactions.

Helping you to manage costs

Economic reality requires all advisers to provide more for less, without compromising quality. We navigate these often competing demands, focusing on open engagement, operational efficiency and innovation. Work is assigned to the most appropriate people or technology to ensure standards remain high and costs are controlled.

Consistently top-notch. They have the spread of expertise that we need. CHAMBERS, 2016
