Banks & Financial Institutions
Collaborating for economic stability
Banks and financial institutions are playing a critical role in stabilising Australia's economy in the midst of global uncertainty – they are providing financial resilience at a time of significant geopolitical and economic change. The industry is also taking a long-term view, and working pragmatically with its customers to help businesses remain viable and keep people in their homes. This includes providing fairer and more sustainable financial products and services.
As the impact of climate change and sustainability remains a primary focus of global markets, the industry is acutely aware of its role in ESG, including the risks and opportunities it presents for customers and investors.
These issues are front of mind for regulators as well, and the industry must be transparent in managing both conduct risk and ESG risks as early as possible.

We work with our clients as a strategic partner. In an evolving landscape, we aim to provide you with nimble and practical advice – both in relation to the law and commercial dynamics.
Solutions not only for you but your clients
Helping customers and investors succeed is at the heart of what banks and financial institutions aim to do. Our financial services team draws on experts across a range of disciplines, including M&A, disputes, regulatory response, corporate governance, risk and advisory, banking and finance, and funds management, superannuation and wealth management.
Access to the right people with the right approach
Working across practice groups, we deploy the right people and technology for each matter, backed by a commercial, solution-driven approach. We have the depth of experience and bench strength to handle large and complex matters, but can also leverage these strengths, as well as technology, to provide tailored solutions for BAU matters and document-intense projects.
Keeping you informed of what's to come
For 200 years, we have worked with lenders, borrowers, government, advisers and other participants in the financial services sector. We advise on best practice and, in many cases, have played a role in setting it. Also, our Alliance with Linklaters, one of the leading banking and finance law firms in the world, provides us with access to the latest global developments on the horizon and further insights into how they may affect you.
