Our global financial services and regulation practice helps our clients navigate the evolving and increasingly complex regulatory environment, working seamlessly across major business and financial hubs.

Structured around three core regulatory focus areas – governance, conduct and markets issues – our team is well-known for its regulatory, advisory, transactional, investigations and enforcement work with the largest players in both wholesale and retail financial services, including banks, asset and wealth managers, brokers, market infrastructure providers, commodities firms, payments providers and FinTechs.

In Hong Kong, financial institutions need to navigate regulation from multiple government agencies, including the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Insurance Authority, Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority, and the Securities and Futures Commission. Our Hong Kong financial services and regulation team has extensive experience advising financial institutions on the full range of financial services laws and regulations.

We advise on financial services regulation (across banking, intermediaries, insurance and payments), banking and intermediaries supervision and conduct matters, compliance and cross-border regulatory issues, licensing and authorization, the regulation of a full range of financial products and services, and financial markets infrastructure, as well as payments and FinTech.

Members of our regional team have also held positions in key financial regulatory bodies, including the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Our understanding of the nuances of working with financial regulators, the underlying policies which shape their approach, including international regulatory cooperation, triggers for enforcement action, and how to more effectively collaborate with regulators, enables us to ensure our clients are compliant with current regulations while safeguarding their interests.
