Banking Finance & Regulatory Advice

We regularly advise domestic and international clients (including financial and banking institutions, global corporations, hotels, professional and public bodies, family offices, and private investors) on the full range of banking and finance transactions, including acquisition and leveraged financing, refinancing, asset finance, real estate finance, and aviation and yacht financing.

Our legal services include:

  • Reviewing, structuring and drafting finance documentation, including banking, lending and security documents, and registering and perfecting security instruments
  • Advising on banking and financing structures and deals involving structures established in, or going through, the Turks and Caicos Islands
  • General banking legal advice, including data protection and confidentiality, and
    on-going regulatory and compliance advice
  • Advising across a broad range of asset classes and advising across the lifecycle of transactions, from structuring and negotiation through to restructurings, insolvency and enforcement

 

Our team also has a deep knowledge and experience of financial services, regulatory and compliance matters relative to the Turks and Caicos Islands. We regularly advise clients on a wide range of regulatory issues including:

  • Anti-Money Laundering
  • Anti-Bribery & Corruption
  • Data Protection
  • Financial Services Regulation
  • New Business Activities
  • Regulatory Training

 

We make practical commercial sense of an increasingly complex regulatory landscape to help clients develop, maintain and grow their businesses as simply as possible.

Economic substance legislation requires entities carrying on specific types of businesses in the Turks and Caicos Islands to demonstrate adequate economic substance in the jurisdiction.

To facilitate compliance our lawyers, in conjunction with our allied specialist, licensed corporate manager and formation agent, G&P Corporate Services, can map, review and advise on existing structures, contracts and governance arrangements, agreements and other documentation, to support economic substance compliance. We can assess the impact of the legislation, and guide and support clients accordingly.

You can download our Guidance Note on the Economic Substance Requirements for Turks and Caicos Islands Entities here.

We also provide specialist legal services on:

  • Restructurings
  • Insolvency and enforcement
  • Receivership, liquidation and administration
