Financial service providers, such as banks, payment companies, insurance companies, securities companies and fund managers are subject to extensive regulations. These regulations include requirements for organisation, capital and business activities.

We have extensive regulatory expertise, and long experience in assisting regulated businesses in all matters relating to their organisation and operations, including the relationship with Norwegian and foreign supervisory authorities. Several of our lawyers have work experience from relevant public authorities. We also have extensive practice in anti-money laundering and countering financing of terrorism.

We actively support our clients in application processes, establishing and maintaining internal business frameworks and communication with public authorities. Regulatory matters frequently demand knowledge of other key areas such as labour law, VAT, taxes, IT and protection of privacy, and corporate penalty. Wiersholm's lawyers work in cross-disciplinary teams to ensure that all aspects of the client's needs are met.
