Regulatory

Clients are faced with regulatory change, exposure to risk and uncertainty.  One of our many roles is to explain and clarify how regulatory and legal changes affect our clients and the way they do business.  We help them to identify and to implement necessary controls, processes and communication strategies to meet those demands.

Strategy

Businesses need strategic solutions to meet ever-evolving regulatory regimes in different jurisdictions.  We work with our clients to find their regulatory environment and others that they wish to do business in.  We establish the best solutions for the regulations that affect them to enable them to work with their regulators -both in the spirit of compliance and in the event of enforcement.

Change

Regulation is constantly evolving.  We assist our clients in responding to the changes that affect them and advise them as to their options and the most effective way to respond to and to adopt changes now and in the future.  We seek to develop a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses. Working from this we believe in creating long-term relationships and cooperation both within the organisation and externally with its regulators.

What Our Clients Say

Verena understands the law but what sets her apart is her in-depth understanding of the business and products.

– General Counsel and Company Secretary, UK asset manager

Verena has a no-nonsense approach and always looks for the practical solution to problems.

CEO, EMEA, asset management group

It is refreshing to work with someone who sees things from the business point of view as well as having just the legal issues in mind.

Head of Regulated Products, US bank and custodian

“Verena is insightful, has great poise, is always pleasant and implemented our regulatory change programme with great efficiency.”

– Director of Compliance and Legal Services, EMEA, global custody bank

“We always appreciate Verena’s advice on how to position our negotiations with Regulators.  She has great industry knowledge.”

– Head of Product Development, global fund provider

“We were delighted, as part of our programme to enhance the visibility and leverage the functionality of our in-house legal team, to see an increase in the volume of legal work now directed to the team.  

The increase was not just because people became aware that Verena was there to assist but more because they greatly valued the quality of the legal advice Verena gave to them.

Her contribution to all aspects of the work of our in-house team was exceptional; she helped to inspire the team to take on new challenges and this resulted in business colleagues seeking out internal advice rather than directly calling external lawyers.”

– General Counsel, EEA private bank
