Banking & Investment Law

Banking & Investment Law

The financial services sector is one of the most strictly regulated sectors of the economy, and not just since the Lehmann Brothers bankruptcy. In close cooperation with our other expert groups, we offer our clients comprehensive legal advice.

This ranges from the licensing of an institution and the drafting of contracts for financial products to advice and representation in BaFin investigation and sanction proceedings and other legal disputes.
Our clients include financial and payment service providers, target groups of BaFin measures and companies acting as market participants.
