Brokerage firms, assets management and fund management companies face an increasingly complex regulatory, legislative and technological environments, making highly experienced legal counsel a must for anyone providing products and services related to the financial and capital markets.
Porat Group has extensive experience with this industry, it being one of the first ones we specialized in when the law firm was founded. Our regulatory lawyers have vast experience with financial institutions in general, as well as with the relevant regulators in many jurisdictions in particular. We also have lawyers with us who have served as in-house counsel for regulators and companies within the industry in the past.
Due to that Porat Group is able to offer a full range of legal and business consultancy services for broker-dealers, brokerage firms, market makers, assets management firms, funds and related companies. We are already representing both a number of domestic players within the industry, as well as major multinational companies in the field.
Some of the most sought after services by financial, brokerage and other closely related firms, provided by Porat Group, are:
We provide the above, as well as some additional, services for multiple jurisdictions within the European Union and Eastern Europe (for example Cyprus, Malta, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Estonia, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Lithuania), Australia, numerous jurisdictions in Asia (for example Hong Kong and Singapore) and several offshore financial centers such as the Cayman Islands and Switzerland.
We are therefore able to completely let the clients’ needs and wishes determine what jurisdiction is most suitable in each individual case. In the event that the client has no preference and is uncertain where to incorporate and regulate their business, we are also able to provide consultancy on the differences, benefits and disadvantages of all these jurisdictions.
