Finance Regulatory

Financial companies increasingly need to implement new Dutch and European laws and regulations in their organisation. These new laws and regulations are a challenge for legal and compliance departments and they also have an impact on the day-to-day business. 

Due to increasing and more complex regulations, careful and up-to-date legal advice is required. Our multidisciplinary Finance Regulatory Team has the required experience and expertise to advise you in this area. We represent financial companies and other parties that are involved with financial supervision. This gives our specialists an unparalleled understanding of this complex financial playing field. 


Our team has extensive experience in financial supervision matters (both prudential and market conduct supervision). The team advises and assists in matters including:
  • market access;
  • applications for certificates of no objection;
  • scope of issues;
  • governance;
  • FinTech and innovative products;
  • implementation of new laws and regulations; and
  • outsourcing. 

We have thorough knowledge of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (Wft) and regulations such as MiFID II, PSD II, AMLD, AIFMD, Solvency II, CRD and IDD


Our Finance Regulatory Team has a good relationship with the Dutch supervisory authorities AFM (the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets and DNB (De Nederlandsche Bank). The advice we provide always takes into account the interpretation of the supervisory authorities. We are able to offer strategic solutions, as our Finance Regulatory specialists work closely together with our experts on employment law, privacy & data protection, IT, tax and banking & finance. 


Thanks to our offices in Brussels, London and New York, and our friend firms, we have an extensive international network, which gives us access to relevant expertise in foreign legislation and regulations.
