K&L Gates’ Derivatives & Structured Products practice is a substantial part of our general financial services, investment management, public policy, energy, commodities, finance, and regulatory enforcement practices.
We capitalize on our institutional knowledge and achieve efficiencies for the benefit of clients by establishing multidisciplinary teams of practitioners in investment management, securities, commodity trading, tax, broker-dealer, securitization, bankruptcy, bank regulatory, structured products, ERISA, commercial and residential real estate, the Uniform Commercial Code, distressed debt, securities lending, repurchase and reverse-repurchase transactions, and international law.
Derivatives and structured products trade in markets throughout the world and require a global legal platform. This is especially true in light of current international reform efforts. By leveraging our experience from our global offices including those in key financial markets, we add value and provide a competitive cost advantage compared to other firms whose financial services practices may lack our breadth and depth.
In the United States, the U.S. News-Best Lawyers® 2016 survey ranked K&L Gates as a national first-tier law firm in the areas of Derivatives and Futures Law.
