Today’s financial services industry is undergoing unprecedented consolidation, convergence and globalization. The industry is evolving rapidly, and its counselors and advisors—particularly legal advisors—must be poised to assist the industry’s prime participants, both to reap the rewards of change and to avoid the risks associated with it.
King & Spalding advises industry leaders on the full range of legal issues confronting the industry. We guide our financial services clients in their relationships with customers and in their activities as lenders, underwriters, investment and merchant bankers, broker/dealers, placement agents and advisors in complex public and private financial transactions. We represent many financial services firms in matters relating to labor and employment; mergers, joint ventures and strategic partnerships; and the creation and protection of intellectual properties and business methodologies. We exercise our extensive litigation experience when prosecuting and defending lawsuits, arbitrations and government inquiries. King & Spalding’s lawyers know the financial services industry and the needs of its leading participants.
