Amid sweeping sectoral change, we're supporting financial institutions to realise their goals.
Our multi-disciplinary banking and finance team works with organisations across the sector. These include, but are not limited to, the major Australian banks, foreign banks, credit unions, mutual banks and regional banks. We advise on regulatory issues, financing products, commercial lending and capital raising. In addition, our solutions cover operational issues such as conduct risk mitigation, outsourcing, employment, tax, managing disputes and also credit and investment funds.
Our team's banking regulatory expertise encompasses all technical and commercial aspects of this highly regulated industry. We understand the key areas of interest to regulators such as APRA and ASIC, and assist clients to deal with changing regulations and prudential standards amidst constant political, regulatory and community scrutiny.

We work across the full spectrum of financing transactions, including corporate finance, project finance, including for PPPs, asset and structured finance, securitisation and debt capital markets transactions, including listed bonds.
