Financial Services Regulation
Our Financial Services Regulation practice has emerged as one of the most highly regarded in the UAE.
In a world of increasing financial regulation, we help navigate clients through those regulations and offer advice on meeting compliance obligations with practical and robust solutions. We also advise in connection with investigations and enforcement actions. We advise all stakeholders across the full spectrum of financial services sectors in the UAE and the region. We have established strong working relationships with regulators and financial authorities. This enables us to provide current advice on the interpretation and application of local and regional regulatory requirements.
