Course Understanding City Clients: A Guide for Corporate Lawyers


Could you explain the points of contention in the ISDA Credit Support Annex? Do you know your way around the Volcker rule? What could go wrong this time with securitisation?

Banks and financial institutions are among the most attractive, yet also most demanding clients for the professional firm. When their profitability is under pressure, they respond with innovative solutions, which may open banks up to unexpected legal and regulatory risk. An effective legal advisor must therefore understand the client’s priorities and be able to speak their language.

This half-day course will ensure you are on top of recent initiatives in global financial markets and ready for client meetings – without needing a translator to understand what they are talking about! Use the opportunity to question a neutral banking expert and gain practical insight into new initiatives.

The course will deal with the following:

  • Current themes in banking with a legal or regulatory angle
  • Brexit fallout – is there an alternative to passporting financial services?
  • Can UK-based clearing of Euro-denominated trades survive repatriation to the Euro-zone?
  • BYOQ – Bring your own question – get a banker’s point of view in return
This is an essential overview for all those joining a corporate department in a City law firm and for in-house counsel who haven’t had previous exposure to this arena or would benefit from a refresher.

You may also be interested in attending: Bitcoin and Blockchain: The Lawyer's Essential Guide which takes place at the same venue in the afternoon.
