Banking and Capital Markets

Our Expertise

SYLVENSTEIN Lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the European and German banking law sector and its regulators. We provide advice to investment, domestic and international banks and corporate clients which are active in the field of financial service.

Our aim is to support our client with decisive, timely and clear advice on regulatory, legal and reputational issues. Our service portfolio is based on an up-to-date advice, which is very important in the field of European and German banking law and capital markets.

Technical developments in the banking and capital markets area are moving very fast, and therefore new legislation arises nearly monthly. As a conequence, we focus on an up-to-date advice vis-a-vis our clients.
Our team consists of experts in banking and capital market law. We have rich experience regarding the technical development in the banking and financial area. We also provide service for credit and financial services institutions from the beginning by supporting them in the application process for the authorisation at the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) to conduct banking business or to provide financial services in Germany.
We give advice to various FinTechs and we know their business model in detail as we worked with FinTechs at an early stage. Therefore, we know how to cope with the legal requirements regarding crowdfunding, blockchain or on matters of electronic payment transactions (i.e., cashless payment) in connection with online payment systems (e.g., Giropay, Paypal and Paydirekt) and digital currencies (e.g. Bitcoin).

We also provide advice including advisor liability in connection with the laws pertaining to securities transactions and fund investments, asset management and financing and secured lending.

At SYLVENSTEIN Lawyers, we solve problems quick and effective – before they become litigious. However, we are prepared to take robust and resolute action to protect our clients’ interests. Before German courts, we supported our clients in legal proceedings with great success. We have the procedural know-how to act in court proceedings regarding banking and finance litigation. We also have litigation know-how regarding claims against investment advisors and consultant due to any actual or alleged negligent act, error or omission committed in the scope of their duties as investment counselors/advisors.
