Our lawyers have extensive experience in banking and financial services areas including:

  • Licence applications.

  • Credit card and e-money activities.
  • Financial services.
  • All regulatory matters.
  • Customer-related areas including contractual documentation.

Our team has expertise in merger and acquisition transactions involving financial sector professional entities.

We also handle all types of banking litigation issues including fraud and crisis management, and assist our clients in mediation procedures before the financial sector supervisory authority, the Commission de surveillance du secteur financier (CSSF).

We maintain a close relationship with the authorities through our presence on various advisory bodies of the CSSF, the Ministry of Finance and the Luxembourg Bankers Association, and through our active involvement in the legislative drafting process.

Our banking and financial services team also works closely with Arendt Regulatory & Consulting S.A., which offers regulatory compliance support and consultancy services, providing financial sector clients with practical assistance regarding compliance, business and operations, and governance.

This complementary approach unique in Luxembourg offers our clients the most effective solutions for dealing with regulatory issues.
