Financial Services

The Australian banking and financial services sector is a complex, constantly shifting landscape. Regulatory changes, increasing competition, growing public scrutiny and evolving technology combine to challenge participants across the sector.

Piper Alderman has an outstanding reputation for providing responsive, quality legal advice to banks, credit unions and other financial services providers. We specialise in regulatory and compliance advice, financial services delivery channels, commercial arrangements concerning financial services providers, lending transactions and securities enforcement. Our partners have had extensive experience helping providers to comply with the waves of regulatory reforms that have affected the sector.  And we understand the new technologies that are emerging in the sector.

We represent lenders of every type and size, along with private equity organisations. Our clients include large, mid-tier and boutique banks in Australia and overseas. We also offer banking and financial advice to private clients including entrepreneurs, start-ups, investors and family groups. Our team prefers to work closely with clients’ legal, compliance, products, projects, marketing and IT departments to provide superior, all-round legal solutions tailored to client needs.

Piper Alderman is committed to helping our clients stay ahead of the financial market. Our practical and up to date approach ensures we are well placed to advise on the challenges presented by the changing conditions and to assist financial services providers to thrive.
