Banking, Finance & Capital Markets

Banking, Finance & Capital Markets forms a significant part of Moussas & Partners’ practice for which we are well-known. Our specialists’ knowledge of the sector and its issues enables our lawyers to provide results driven commercial advice to financial institutions on complex transactions and to address challenging business issues.

We have been at the forefront of the recent regulatory overhaul in the Greek banking sector that unfolded over the last two years in the wake of recent financial and political developments. We are also advising domestic and international credit institutions and investment firms, including our advice on a credit institutions merger through a voluntary shares tender offer during 2012 – 2013 which was expected to alter the country’s banking map but was eventually aborted. Nicholas Moussas, the Managing Partner, has been acting as General Counsel to the Hellenic Deposit and Investment Guarantee Fund (HDIGF) since 1997 and has contributed to the recent drafting of the new regulatory regime in relation to the incorporation of Directive 2014/49/EU on deposit guarantee schemes and Directive 2014/59/EU establishing a framework for the recovery and resolution of credit institutions and investment firms. Our financial services team has advised a significant number of credit institutions and has assisted them in addressing effectively all aspects of financial services regulations.

The Firm is highly experienced in acting on a full range of finance transactions, spanning from straightforward secured and unsecured loans to complicated acquisition, real estate, asset and project finance structures, as well as the local arm of complex cross-border financings.

Our Banking, Finance & Capital Markets practice provides advice in relation to the full spectrum of financial products including syndicated lending, bond issues, asset finance, derivative products, project finance, financial regulatory, insolvency & restructuring, structured debt, equity capital markets, sale agreements and other financial instruments, UCITS and AIFMD.
