Our client is a FTSE 250 company and a dynamic global financial services group.  They have a predominantly retail client base and empower informed, decisive, adventurous people to access opportunities in over 15,000 financial markets. 

Their vision is to be a global leader in retail trading and investments.  They are already global leaders in contracts for differences (CFD) and foreign exchange trading, and later this year they will be launching a European trading venue for listed securities.

  • Contract drafting, interpretation and negotiation in relation to the variety of documentation             pertaining to CFDs, FX-trading and share dealing;

  • Advising on European regulatory developments;
  • Providing general legal support and advice to the European businesses;
