Risk Library

Berwin Leighton Paisner

Our Litigation and Corporate Risk department has over 200 specialist lawyers across Europe, the Middle East, Russia and Asia who help prevent, mitigate and manage risks that arise in every aspect of banking, insurance and asset management.

Clients across the financial sector rely on BLP to help alleviate the pressure created by increased regulation and litigation. Members of our team have been on over 30 secondments to clients and regulatory bodies and we advised over 400 financial institutions last year.

BLP deliver in-person, forward-looking and direct recommendations – we never sit on the fence. The result is a highly responsive, joined-up, commercial approach that leads to clear solutions – depressurising our clients’ work. 

 

Managing legal risk effectively

Managing legal risks from the perspective of general counsel are reviewed. Supporting lawyers in making risk decisions, escalating issues and integrating with the risk management frameworks and risk culture of the broader business is a new point of focus for corporates and financial institutions.
