Financial Services

At GSO, we advise corporate and financial institutions on banking regulations, compliance within the regulatory requirements of the financial services industry and all other areas of law impacting their operations.

 

GSO’s Financial Services Practice Group offers sophisticated, forward-thinking advice to local and international clients, encompassing a wide range of practice areas including corporate law, banking and securities law, investment funds, secured lending and structured finance, capital and financial markets, regulatory compliance and corporate advisory services.

The members of the Financial Services Practice Group have broad based expertise which has been developed and honed by years of exposure to and interaction with entrepreneurs, ultra high net worth individuals, multinational companies and major law firms worldwide. We pride ourselves on our sensitivity and attention to real world commercial issues, not just the legal aspects of a transaction.

Our goal is to establish strong relationships with our clients in order to obtain a holistic view of their requirements, thereby affording us the opportunity to generate cohesive, comprehensive solutions.

GSO advises not only individuals and families but also corporate and institutional clients, including public companies, domestic and international bank and trust companies, insurance companies, financial institutions, broker-dealers, investment managers and funds.

Recent instructions and activity in the Financial Services Practice Group include advising on the establishment of ICON and SMART Funds for major Brazilian financial institutions, working with an internationally recognized family office to restructure its world-wide holdings and assisting a local broker-dealer to develop offering materials for the newly established government debt program.
