LawFuel.com – Fast-changing events in the global financial markets are affecting businesses around the world. It is a time of uncertainty for all and a period of concern for most. Yet, others may see once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunities. While individuals and businesses will have varying economic views during this historic period, it is certain that the sources and costs of funding are changing, and government regulation is intensifying.
DLA Piper continues to monitor the global financial markets and the actions of governments around the world. Through a coordinated effort among our offices in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, we have established a global, multi-disciplinary working group that is focused on supporting clients in the following areas:
Refinancing of existing sources of funding
Restructuring of capital structures and asset classes
Asset sales and purchases
Clearing and settlement matters
Guidance within the changing regulatory environment
Risk management, enforcement and litigation matters
Our global Financial Crisis Response Team has substantial experience in each of these areas, supported by broad regulatory and financing expertise.
