Banking & Finance
Froriep’s growing banking and finance team has the expertise and specialisation to cover every aspect of legal financial services work, in addition to offering extensive transactional knowledge. Our team members also have in-depth operational experience, invaluable for many of our clients in a period of rapid and complex regulatory change.
Our clients include banks and other financial services providers and institutions. We can service them in all legal questions relating to their business, from regulatory issues to banking contracts and complex financing transactions, through to structuring financial products and having them listed on the stock exchange.
Several of our partners serve on the boards of financial institutions, and our clients regularly look to us for guidance and support on the reorganisation required to keep pace with today’s rapid cycles of regulatory change.
Members of our team have worked within the Swiss regulators, and finding the right tone in our dealings with them is second nature. We have also worked closely with Froriep’s M&A practice on some very prestigious Swiss acquisitions in the financial sector. We are comfortable and familiar with taking the role of project leaders and ensuring that what needs to be done gets done.
Q: What characterises Froriep’s approach to banking and finance clients?
A: “When I talk about a client’s business, I often find myself saying ‘we’, not ‘I’ and ‘you’. This 24-hour involvement is part of our job. We’re passionate about our clients’ work.”
