Baker & McKenzie's Financial Services Group is one of the premier structured products legal practices in Australia. We are unique in that we draw on the experience of a senior team of lawyers who focus solely on structured equities and derivatives, funds management, tax structuring, financial markets, superannuation, regulation and disclosure.
Our experience and commitment to client service has made us the preferred team for a number of the world's leading banks, financial institutions and fund managers, including the market leaders in Australia. We work with clients to think laterally and develop innovative, yet practical, structures appropriate for the current economic climate.
The Group has sustained its market reputation by providing innovative financial products to leading product issuers. In 2008 we were awarded the "Law Firm and Tax Advisor of the Year" at the Australian Structured Products Magazine Awards and were the legal advisors behind other winning structured products.
We continue to demonstrate our knowledge by advising industry participants on the establishment and offering of structured equity and deposit products, Australian and offshore managed funds, AFS licensing issues, fiduciary duties, investment management agreements, custodial duties, anti-money laundering compliance, the preparation of compliance and offer documents, and appropriate tax structuring for products.
