Banking & Finance


Credit institutions, financial service companies, insurance companies and other players in the financial and insurance sector face an extensive and complex regulatory framework whose breach entails very significant costs, as well as different kinds of substantial risks, not only for these entities, but also for the managers themselves.

Accordingly, the team of Banking & Finance at CMS Rodríguez-Azuero advises local and international financial and banking entities, in connection with complex regulatory issues that affect, or may affect, their activities in Colombia and abroad.

The efficiencies, costs, failure or success of financial products or similar services depends largely on their structure. The Firm supports financial institutions in the structuring and implementation of new products or the restructuring of existing ones in order to adapt them to new legal realities and requirements.

Moreover, the Firm advises company owners and non-financial traders in order to prevent them from engaging in transactions that are exclusive to financial institutions, which could result in severe civil and criminal penalties. We also advise entities in the real sector and/or the financial sector in the financial operations held between each other, which includes an active participation in project finance.

Furthermore, we accompany entities of the insurance sector both in the development of their products and in their relationship with reinsurers and market agents, as well as in the management of processes generated in that sector.

Lastly, we support companies that, due to circumstantial circumstances, must carry out reorganization or liquidation processes, as well as their bank and non-bank creditors.

The team in this area also has experience in the financial sector and in the industries related to it. It is highly recognized for providing a comprehensive advice which incorporates not only a legal perspective but also a deep knowledge of the industry and your business.

Our services include:

  • Financial Regulation
  • Securities & Capital Markets
  • Fiduciary Law & Trusts Products
  • Insurance
  • Restructuring and Insolvency
  • Structured, Project & Corporate Finance

With a presence in more than 40 countries, our Firm offers you efficient legal solutions wherever your business requires.
