Financial institutions—Disruption & innovation
Australia’s financial institutions are facing disruption and causing disruption at the same time. Confronted with challenges on many fronts—be it regulatory, shareholder pressure or demands for greater transparency—financial institutions are becoming more innovative and moving away from traditional distribution channels.
Our team brings together legal and finance industry expertise to support institutions with advisory and transactional services, while keeping them ahead of the curve on global and local regulatory shifts.
From complex deals with novel structures, to day-to-day transactions, we meet our clients’ needs with insight, responsiveness and professionalism. We challenge ourselves to continually bring our clients innovative solutions and approaches, including best-in-class technology.
We draw on firm wide expertise in areas such as tax structuring, planning and digital as well as our highly regarded construction team. Our lawyers have advised on many significant cross-border financings involving various developed and developing markets, and all major business sectors.
Our diverse set of skills equips us to deal with a range of financial products and transactions from project and infrastructure finance, structured trade and receivables, derivatives and Islamic finance as well as real estate, corporate and acquisition finance. We are also a market leader in the field of film finance.
We have a number of “best friend” relationships with highly regarded offshore law firms who we regularly work with for in-bound and out-bound transactions.
We pride ourselves on the fact that clients regard us as user-friendly, efficient and approachable, and value our transparent and pragmatic approach.
