Event Details


United Kingdom | June 17, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a severe impact on many business sectors, and financial institutions are no exception. Many firms are likely to encounter challenges of one form or another in coming months, as countries emerge from lockdown and seek to resume normal business at different times, and the applicable legal and regulatory regimes respond accordingly. Improvements made to the relevant regimes since the Global Financial Crisis, in addition to certain recent initiatives and regulatory responses, mean that there are a number of technical and practical issues for financial institutions and their advisers to consider as the situation develops.

This webinar series will explore these issues from several perspectives, with views and insights from our financial services regulatory and financial restructuring and insolvency lawyers, and professionals from some of the global accountancy firms with whom we work regularly.

Join us for a refresh and update on the relevant law and regulations, some insights into current practices, and a chance to ask the experts your questions.
