Financial Services and Compliance

We advise on the increasingly complex financial services regulatory regime, focusing on the funds management sector. We can assist with scheme documentation for registered and unregistered schemes, including constitutions, compliance plans, offer documents, and the registration and deregistration of schemes.

We assist with scheme and AFSL audits, AFSL applications and variations, ASIC relief applications, structuring and financial requirements, distribution models, complex financial products, AML/CTF obligations and regimes, privacy issues, authorised representative agreements, administration and custody arrangements.

We are rapidly developing our crypto-currency practice and can assist with whitepapers, token holder agreements, ICO’s and crypto launches. We support our clients in response to regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings, including breach notifications, ASIC compulsory production notices, section 19 ASIC hearings and enforceable undertakings.
