Banking- Financial institutions

Cornet Vincent Ségurel advises players in the banking and financial services industry (banks, specialised lending institutions, management companies, investment companies, investment advisors, and other intermediaries), with respect to all of their operations.

We advise players in the world of banking and finance in all areas of law applicable to them (banking and finance law, company law, economic law, competition law, tax law, intellectual property, liability) and  represent them in litigation arising from these areas.

Our multidisciplinary teams assist them in implementing their strategic or structural projects, such as: creation of new structures and obtaining licenses/permits/approvals from appropriate governmental authorities, completion of acquisitions or restructurings in the regulated area, completion of transactions in the financial markets.

We also provide all types of legal assistance to industry professionals in connection with their operations or transactions with their clients in the areas of:

  • Banking finance (corporate finance, acquisition finance, project finance, real property finance) or market financings (issues of debt securities through an IBO or private placement (in particular EuroPP));
  • Structuring of financial products (equity securities or financial contracts, specific loans, payment services, crowdfunding);
  • Sale and distribution of financial products; or
  • Promotional or advertising campaigns.

Cornet Vincent Ségurel, furthermore, advises banks and financial institutions in managing their own internal problems, whether they involve specific regulatory problems linked to their business sector (compliance with prudential standards, internal controls and compliance, anti-money laundering and financing of terrorism, confidentiality, personal data protection) or problems relating to their current operations (labor/management relations, leases, supplier relations, etc.).
