Legália provides legal assistance to financial institutions and issuers in connection with the issue and public offering, listing in national and international markets, private placements to institutional investors of structured financial products, ETF, ETC, UCITS funds, structured and plain vanilla notes, minibonds, insurance financial instruments, repo and securities lending transactions both in the Italian and European markets.
Based on the experience gained in the capital markets industry, the assistance provided covers each stage of the transaction, from the structuring of investment products – taking into account to the regulatory environment where the clients operate and identifying the solutions that most efficiently suit the client’s needs – to the drafting of the legal documentation in order to equip the client with the appropriate tools to implement the investment solutions in compliance with the applicable law.
The experience developed with the competent authorities (BANK OF ITALY, CONSOB, IVASS) as well as the Italian and Irish stock exchange by the Firm’s founding partners and counsels allows the smooth management of the relations with such authorities and an on-going update in the relevant matters. Where the transaction requires assistance on non-Italian legal aspects, Legália is structured so to be able to avail itself of strong relationships with international law firms.
Legália put significant focus on new businesses and projects. In this respect, the Firm is very active in the “FinTech” field, where the values and dynamics of the firm coupled with the experience in the financial sector, allow us to assist start-ups and market players in a flexible and proactive way.
