Technological innovation, regulatory reforms, changes of shareholding structures and increased scrutiny and demand by supervision authorities and the market in general continue to present increased challenges for the banking industry. These factors are forcing a consolidation of the sector, a refocus on the bank’s core businesses and a change in their way of operating, alongside with the introduction and reinforcement of risk control and compliance management, as well as with a digital transformation also prompted by the entrance of new technological market players.

We hold a long-established and very close relationship with both the domestic as well as the international banking community.

For over four decades, our lawyers have been advising domestic and international clients from this segment, with diversified secondment experiences, assisting in the creation and dissolution of banks, recapitalization and own funds increase and management, and on various high-level complex and many times cross-border assignments.

We have a long experience in helping our banking and financial domestic and international clients, supporting their design of new products and services, in their day-to-day activity, including their relationships with supervision authorities and clients. Through VdA Legal Partners, our firm is an active participant in the African lusophone and francophone OHADA jurisdictions in which our international net-work is present, as well as in East Timor.
