REPRESENTATION WITH REGULATOR
The members of the team have represented firms before the Hungarian regulator (currently the National Bank of Hungary) and have assisted in the registration of UCITS and Alternative Investment Funds pursuant to the „common passport” available under the EU Directives.
The aim of the Financial Services Team is to provide its international experience based on its familiarity with the law of many jurisdictions (particularly the EU and the United States), applying domestic and global regulations that impact clients’ business operations. The lawyers advise clients on the expansion and introduction of financial products into local markets, and governments and financial regulators in the development of legislation.
