DSM’s Banking and Financial Law practice team advises on a wide range of financial transactions governed by Luxembourg law, involving Luxembourg and foreign entities or in respect of Luxembourg-based assets.

Advice to banks and professionals of the financial sector (PSF)

Representing lenders as well as borrowers, collateral providers and pledgees, we provide legal advice on financing and the taking of security, not only on all structuring, tax and ancillary aspects of both traditional corporate finance but also more complex financing arrangements and hybrid financial instruments. We have extensive experience advising financial institutions and other professionals in the financial sector on all aspects of client contractual relations and documentation, professional liability, criminal financial law liability, corporate governance and personal data protection.

Litigation and criminal proceedings in financial matters

In cooperation with our litigation team, we have broad-based litigation, dispute resolution, and arbitration capabilities in finance-related matters both in Luxembourg and in international venues. We are also able to assist bankers and financial professionals involved in financial criminal proceedings.
