Banking Law

We advise banks, investment companies and financial service firms as well as their customers, strictly avoiding, of course, any risks of conflicts of interests.  Some of the world’s largest financial institutions value our assistance. However, in contrast to many large legal firms we are not practically inhibited from representing clients against major banks. Therefore, legal advice and opinions to banking customers in preparation of disputes as well as the representation of such clients in court constitute a significant element of our work.
