Financial supervision law
Financial supervision law is complex and constantly changing. Laws and regulations follow each other in quick succession and are regularly amended. As a result, financial institutions active on the financial markets are increasing regulatory pressure. This may lead to far-reaching consequences for their activities, daily operations and revenue models. In this rapidly changing landscape, Van Doorne has a team of financial regulatory specialists. They are fully up to date with current developments of (European and national) laws and regulations, have knowledge of the market and constantly anticipate and respond to the latest developments in the sector.

Our area of expertise

The team advises a large number of international and national clients, active in the financial sector. The team advises parties on various queries related to European and national financial supervision law, , among others (the Dutch implementation of) CRD/CRR, PSD/PSR, AIFMD, MiFID/MiFIR, Solvency II, AMLD, DORA, SFDR/CSRD (and sustainability legislation more broadly), MiCAR, ECSPR and the Directive in relation to consumer credit.

In addition, we have knowledge and understanding of regulatory guidelines, such as guidelines and standards published by EIOPA, EBA, ESMA, the Dutch Central Bank, and the Authority for the Financial Markets.
