Banking and Finance
Banking & Finance has consistently been a core strength of Tsibanoulis & Partners. Being involved in a series of important transaction and litigation matters for more than 25 years, our firm has developed a wealth of experience in the full cycle of banking & finance.
Our teams are ready to interact with our clients’ in-house legal departments and with other practices of our firm (especially: capital markets, corporate, litigation, data protection and tax) to adapt our services to our clients’ needs. Our clients include major international and national banks and corporations, investment firms, funds, payment services providers, NPL servicers, fintech companies, rating agencies, insurance companies and other regulated entities. We have also provided legal advice to governments, state-owned entities, central banks, institutional investors, and legislative committees on the preparation of Greek banking and securities laws.
We regularly provide advice for any matter of regulatory compliance (e.g. issuance of e-money, application of the Bank of Greece Regulatory Sandbox) and help our clients adopt and implement Anti-Money-Laundering and Know-Your-Client procedures. We have broad experience in negotiating any type of transaction for our clients and drafting the relevant contractual documentation or legal opinions.
Loan agreements, establishment of financial and other securities, factoring, syndicated loans, issuance of bonds, structured finance, cross-border lending transactions, securitizations, agreements on the sale and management of NPEs, refinancing agreements, and debt restructurings all consist of typical transactions our lawyers have been confronted with during the last years.
Combining regulatory expertise with transactional and litigation capabilities and a full-service approach, the team is well placed to optimize our clients’ options offering a truly integrated service with consistency of responsiveness and quality that often results in the introduction of novel solutions.
