Our firm's extensive background in working with clients in the highly regulated banking and financial services industries positions us to assist banks seeking to take advantage of their abilities to offer securities and insurance products. We represent financial institutions that are establishing and expanding insurance sales programs throughout the United States, and we offer advice regarding ongoing compliance with insurance, banking, and securities requirements in the United States and Europe.
We also provide counsel in traditional regulatory matters such as the formation of new entities, the raising and investment of capital, and the acquisition or sale of financial institutions or their branches. The purchase and sale of trust assets and companies has also been a focal point of the practice.In the United States, we prepare applications and regulatory comment letters to the Federal Reserve Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and other federal and state agencies. When necessary, we negotiate formal or informal enforcement agreements and advise management as to their responsibilities related to such undertakings.
