Financial Services Regulation [all]

Profile: William Fry's innovative, market leading financial regulation has grown considerably in the past year. We find practical solutions to complex challenges facing our clients in the constantly shifting regulatory landscape. The most important distinguishing feature from our competitors is that we are working on innovative, market leading financial regulatory mandates (both contentious and non-contentious) across every segment of the financial services sector.

Another distinguishing feature from our competitors is our work on landmark regulatory mandates from the Irish government in the FS sector or with a strong FS aspect.

The practice is based on an innovative hub and spoke model with a core group of partners and associates whose practice is either 100% or majority financial regulatory, leading the firm's financial regulation practice and strategy.

The core team is supplemented by a much broader group of partners and associates with significant financial regulatory expertise in their specific segment of the financial services sector.
Services:
  • Contentious FS regulatory / regulatory enforcement
  • Non-contentious FS regulatory – Asset Management and Investment Funds
  • Non-contentious FS regulatory – Insurance
  • Non-contentious FS regulatory – Banking, Payments and E-Money
Deals: We have advised on some of the most significant mandates to date, including:

Advising Apollo, a NYSE quoted US private equity firm, on the necessary Central Bank of Ireland regulatory interactions and requisite filings concerning a corporate holding entity restructuring and, separately, a strategic cross-ownership transaction

Advising the Department of Finance and the National Treasury Management Agency relating to the recovery and holding of the amount which the European Commission considered to be State Aid by Ireland to Apple

Advising BANA and its Irish affiliate, BACSIL, as to their obligations under amended EU Commission Delegated Regulations for UCITS and AIFs relating to safekeeping duties; and preparing and negotiating amendment delegation contracts for each of their safekeeping delegates

Advising TD Global Finance on application to the Central Bank of Ireland for extension of its licence as a MiFID investment firm under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II
