Derivatives and Structured Products for Financial Institutions

Our Financial Institutions attorneys work with issuers and end users, including investment funds and pension funds, who use a broad range of derivative products, such as interest rate swaps, caps and bands, credit default swaps, currency and foreign exchange swaps, total return swaps, equity swaps, commodities swaps, and swap-based indices embedded in debt securities.

We can provide you with services that go beyond transaction counseling, including handling complex regulatory matters for exchanges, derivatives clearinghouses, commercial and institutional users of exchange-traded or cleared OTC derivatives, hedge service providers, futures brokerage firms, and professional trading firms.

We also can help you navigate the ever-changing regulatory requirements and market developments resulting from domestic and international legislation such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) and European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR).
