Financial Markets Regulation

Our Financial Markets Regulation (FMR) practice group advises financial firms on complex matters driven or affected by the supervision and regulation of the financial services industry. FMR advises large national and international groups of banks, insurance companies, investment firms and other financial firms in M&A and capital markets transactions.

In addition, it advises financial firms on a wide range of subjects, such as:

  • licensing
  • governance and structure of business operations
  • structuring of financial services and products
  • regulatory capital issues and compliance with other rules of prudential supervision
  • recovery and resolution


FMR also advises in market regulation matters, such as securities offering rules, the listing and trading of financial instruments, market abuse issues, and financial market infrastructures. FMR regularly teams up with De Brauw’s RCE experts in investigations and enforcement matters for financial firms.


FMR has developed an innovative and unique web portal through which clients can remain informed of European and national regulatory developments relevant to their business. FMR’s partners and associates are actively involved in legislative processes and, as lecturers and speakers, also contribute to the academic development of the supervision and regulation of the financial services industry.
