Who do we Advise in the Banking Industry?
Financial services and banks in Germany find themselves operating in a market which is strictly regulated. Operating in such an environment means that having access to banking and financial services’ lawyers is crucial to be assured of continued success and growth. We advise banks, financial institutions, payment service providers, FinTechs and investment companies on their legal requirements. Our lawyers will provide solutions to your issues based on the nature of your institution and we will view the matter in a comprehensive manner so as to ensure that the solution we provide fits with your company. We advise on matters ranging from loan agreements, contractual disputes and acquisition financing to compliance requirements and the prevention of money laundering.
Operating in Germany requires such institutions to be aware of the international requlations (such as European Union law) which play a significant role alongside German legislation. Our lawyers will ensure that your actions do not come into conflict with this legislation. We will also be on-hand to advise on transactions which take place cross-border.
What can you Expect from our Banking Lawyers?
As our client, you can expect the lawyers from Schlun & Elseven to provide in-depth knowledge of German and internation law in the field. Our lawyers will inform you of your legal requirements under the German Securities Trading Act as well as on the further necessities under international law.
We will also provide attention to detail when it comes to assessing contractual terms and conditions as well in drafting your contracts (see our page on “Contract Lawyers in Germany“). We will assess the small print in the contracts signed by your institution in the past and examine them for possible solutions when your options appear limited. Our lawyers will be by your side in negotiations with your partners, in cases of defaults on repayments and in the enforcement of contractual obligations. We will represent you in-court if necessary but seek to conclude matters outside of court where appropriate. Our lawyers will provide clear guidance on the matters at hand and advise you throughout on the best course of action to take.
You can also expect our banking lawyers to advise you on the developments in the sector and how you can stay ahead of your competition.
