Banking & Finance

Slovakia

As a participant in the global banking and finance industry, you are faced with increasing financial, regulatory and political pressures. New rules on capital requirements, risk profile and investor protection pose challenges for your organisation. We have unmatched geographical coverage and more English and US qualified banking and finance partners on the ground in CEE than any other law firm. We are your first port of call whether you are planning a cross-border transaction with a multi-jurisdictional security package or loan portfolio or implementing a first-of-a-kind financing structure in your domestic market.

Whether you are a financial institution, equity house, asset manager, mutual fund, accountant, privately owned company, corporation or public entity, your business is only as good as the products and services you sell. That’s why we organise our teams along the business lines of your sector, giving us deep insight into the commercial and legal issues you face. From general corporate lending to acquisition and leveraged finance, derivatives and securitisations to real estate finance and corporate recovery, we can help you achieve the best outcome, both locally and across jurisdictions.

Since the market’s liberalisation, our team has advised on some of the largest and most complex cross-border financing transactions in Slovakia. We have also supported clients in the financing of some of the most high-profile infrastructure projects in recent years. Our ability to blend international legal advice with in-depth local knowledge and language skills means that we can offer clients a service second to none.
