Banking law and capital market law

SCHLATTER has been advising banks, financial service institutions and payment institutions with regard to banking and capital market law and banking supervision law for many years. This specialist area is a strong focus of our law firm with four attorneys specializing in banking and capital market law.

We have specific experience in settlement negotiations, arbitration and court proceedings to ward off claims for damages on the basis of the accusation of violations of information requirements and duty to advise as well as prospectus liability where we represent credit institutions and financial service institutions. Our clients appreciate our aim to conclude such procedures as early and discreetly as possible. We also provide defense against claims by third parties arising from guarantees and warranties as well as enforcement of claims from loan agreements. In addition, we assist our clients to act in a way that is legally compliant in a supervisory environment growing continuously more complex.

Another focus is advising financial service companies with regard to contract design and assisting them with the implementation of legal and in particular supervisory requirements, preparing expert opinions on complex questions of banking and capital market law as well as on property transactions funded by loans. Our attorneys are available as speakers and instructors for lectures and trainings on all these topics. This includes jurisdiction-compliant investment consulting, legal changes or legally compliant advisory reports.

Dr. Heiko Hofstätter and Dr. Martin Andreas Duncker have been appointed examinants by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Karlsruhe (IHK Karlsruhe) and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Stuttgart Region (IHK Stuttgart) for conducting the expert knowledge exam for the appointment as examined financial adviser (Geprüfter Finanzanlagenfachmann /-frau IHK).
