The financial services sector faces unprecedented opportunity, as well as increased regulatory risk and enforcement activity, in the wake of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry. Gilbert + Tobin’s financial services regulation practice supports businesses that are participating in, innovating or disrupting payments, markets and platforms and infrastructure. We also advise participants on risk, compliance and engagement in a sector under increased scrutiny from regulators, focussed on demonstrating that they are strong on enforcement.
We have a deep knowledge of the regulatory, social and commercial challenges facing participants in this industry, as well as the numerous opportunities available to financial services clients. We provide full-service financial services offering to support clients through the full commercial landscape, from platform, products and transactional advice through to engagement with regulators, risk and compliance programs and investigations, and we have strong relationships and significant experience in engaging with regulators.
