What EY can do for you

Legal Advisory Services (LAS)

How we can help

As the scope of financial regulation widens, EY Law’s integrated, cross-disciplinary, multi-sectorial approach is designed to steer financial services companies through the regulatory maze. Strong compliance not only protects your business from regulatory risk, but also positions you to take advantage of emerging opportunities. Our experienced regulatory lawyers provide focused, insightful and expert legal advice to help you successfully deal with these challenges.

EY Law provides advice to national and international banks, securities dealers, insurers, asset managers, financial services companies, and pension institutions on a broad range of transactions, product development, regulation, and structural issues.

EY Law teams also advise regulatory authorities, supranational bodies, governments, and government agencies. The team works actively with market organizations to develop documentation, policy and leading practice.

EY Law advises on all legal and regulatory, risk management, enforcement, and compliance issues across multiple jurisdictions.

Financial institution focus:

  • Setup, restructuring and refinancing
  • Winding down business operations
  • Communication and negotiation with local regulatory bodies
  • Legal, regulatory and compliance due diligence
  • Project financing and structured financing of national and international credit transactions
