Banking and Finance

Banking is probably our soapbox, as long as our lawyers have dedicated many thousands of hours in banking business advisory. A great deal of our partners' experience comes from the banking activity, which gives them a professional recognition among peers and clients.

Our lawyers have been retained to assist in establishing new bank in Moldova, including licensing and regulatory clearance, drafting internal regulations and procedures, ensuring the compliance with laws and central bank regulations. Moldovan bankers seek for our advice when new or complex issues emerge and creative solutions are required. We have advised on regulatory issues in the establishment of new financial products, branches and entities, personal data protection, internal organization and corporate governance, assets acquisition and equity participation. Investors appreciate our ability to understand the ins and outs of bank activity and to provide timely and comprehensive legal due diligence reports.

As the non-banking financial sector evolves, we help leasing companies in proper structuring the legal relations with the customers, to ensure protection of interests and risk mitigation. Sometimes clients appeal to our services when other solutions have been tried, with no satisfactory effect.

Foreign and international lenders retain us to ensure that financing and security documentation is drafted and perfected properly. Our legal opinions aim at providing the financiers with the comfort that legal risk is properly identified, dealt with and mitigated.

Complex financing structures, such as co-financing, convertible loans, syndicated loans and structured finance, require the ability to both capture the essence of financial instruments and draw up the appropriate contractual documentation. Here is where the legal, business and financial background of our lawyers proves helpful.

We have been involved in shaping up the banking and non-banking financial legislation and then, when adopted, in advising the financial institutions on emerging rules and standards. Our partners have long-lasting and positive contacts with the banking and financial market regulators, being proud to serve in various task forces and expert groups.

Our lawyers are well known for their transactional and advisory service background in syndicated lending, parallel lending, co-financing, structured finance and trade finance.
