The banking industry has become increasingly sophisticated with the advent of new products, derivatives, e-commerce and digitization. Structural changes resulting from Covid-19 stay-at-home orders and closure of retail branches boosted online transactions to ever-higher levels, creating a greater dependency on electronic banking models and their infrastructure. It also reinforced the need for data protection and cyber security protocols.
Our team has been involved in several banking-related mandates and has developed an understanding of liquidity management, loan loss provisioning, portfolio analysis and risk assessments. We act for a wide variety of stakeholders in the sector, including victims of financial fraud, lenders and regulators.
