The dynamic structure of our group allows our lawyers to efficiently and cost-effectively service the business and regulatory needs of clients within the financial services industry, as well as the financial needs of our business clients.
The principal areas of practice within our Financial Services Group include:

Financial Institutions

Financial Institutions Regulation - Our Financial Institutions practice advises Canadian banks and other deposit-taking institutions on Canadian regulatory requirements for transactions, governance, governmental approvals and regulatory compliance. We assist foreign institutions and near banks with their entry into Canada, the establishment of Canadian operations and transactions which access the Canadian financial services market without establishing a Canadian presence. Our Corporate and Regulatory Insurance practice focuses on the needs of our Canadian and foreign insurance industry clients. We are recognized by the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory for our expertise with financial institution regulation.
The firm frequently advises financial sector participants on regulatory and transactional matters that involve permitted investments, regulatory approvals and compliance, payment cards, payments system regulatory advice, outsourcing and other service arrangements, cross-border regulatory issues and compliance with anti-money laundering requirements.
Insurance - Corporate and Regulatory - Cassels Brock has one of Canada’s most recognized and respected insurance law practices. Our Corporate and Regulatory Insurance group advises a wide range of clients in the insurance industry, including life insurance companies, property and casualty insurance companies, reinsurers, mutual insurance companies, fraternal benefit societies, reciprocals, insurance brokers, managing general agents, banks and trust companies, risk management departments of large corporations, finance corporations, equipment manufacturers, automotive manufacturers and retailers, and insurance industry associations.

Lending and Finance

The Lending and Finance practice at Cassels Brock offers wide-ranging expertise covering traditional lending transactions through to innovative and complex  financing structures. Our lawyers frequently advise on corporate and commercial lending, project finance and other business finance arrangements. We are recognized by the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory and Best Lawyers in Canada for our expertise with asset finance and equipment leasing. We thrive on the challenges of developing alternative funding structures and the creativity required to participate in the private equity market.

Restructuring & Insolvency

The Insolvency & Restructuring group at Cassels Brock is a cohesive team of lawyers with decades of collective experience in all aspects of insolvencies, reorganizations, restructurings, creditors' remedies and commercial litigation. We represent domestic and international financial institutions and investors, commercial and financial organizations, creditors' committees, trustees, receivers, debtors and acquirers of assets or businesses in reorganizations and insolvencies in Canada and around the world.
Members of our Insolvency & Restructuring group helped pioneer the Canadian cross-border insolvency system and we have acted in precedent-setting cross-border filings. We have advised the Government of Canada on amendments to Canadian laws that respond to the new realities of global business and we are active and/or exclusive members of many North American and international insolvency organizations.
