Advising in matters of supervisory law focuses on supporting the establishment of credit and financial services institutions and the expansion of appropriate permits. In addition, we assist institutions in fulfilling their regulatory obligations to the relevant supervisory authorities, such as on (cross-border) outsourcing and capital adequacy.
