Banking and finance
The supply of financing sources and financing products is becoming more and more diverse and knows no national borders. At the same time, the regulatory framework is becoming increasingly tighter and more often than not tends to conflict with market requirements. Niche products and innovation gain importance and restructurings as well as outsourcings aimed at optimising structures require specialists who have a bird’s eye view of the legal landscape.
fwp provides comprehensive advice to renowned national and international credit institutions, financial market participants and companies on all legal matters related to banking, finance and capital markets law. Within this scope of advice fwp has, for many years now, been successful in transforming divergent interests in a balanced manner into sustainable products and results.
