Many of the world’s leading financial institutions conduct business in the Isle of Man and DQ has the expertise and experience to advise them in respect of all areas of their operations. Key to the Isle of Man’s success as a financial centre is its robust regulatory regime. DQ lawyers regularly advise on regulatory and compliance issues, coupling the necessary know-how with strong relationships with the Island’s regulatory bodies and are regarded as leading lawyers in this field on the Isle of Man.
DQ can advise on all aspects of banking, from the establishment and licensing of a bank in the Isle of Man, to group restructures, mergers or acquisitions, transfers of banking business, international financing transactions and, where required, closure of a bank and surrender of licence.
We regularly advise lenders and borrowers on international finance transactions with an Isle of Man or BVI element.
