Wigge’s team of regulatory experts in the financial sector helps and supports all clients who need advice about regulated financial services. Our broad expertise covers everything from authorisations to organisational matters. We also help clients under supervision in their communication and contacts with supervisory authorities in Sweden and internationally.

Our regulatory team has many years of experience both from the EU and Sweden, including the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, ESMA, the Court of Justice of the EU and Swedish courts. We are often engaged as speakers on current issues in the field and our specialists have written several books on capital markets law, sustainability regulations and financial infrastructure.

Our deep knowledge of public administrative law enables us to assist clients in a correct, professional, and efficient way both with supervisory authorities and before the courts.

Wigge’s team helps our clients identify the need for any public approvals or authorisations as well as the scope of application of all financial regulations. We provide advice on regulatory, strategic, and governance issues as well as transactional issues in the establishment phase of new financial products and services, as well as during ongoing operations and in connection with the implementation of new regulations.

For us, the key is to match the needs of our clients to the relevant expert and our ambition is to always provide advice that is professional, relevant, and up to date in all regulatory matters.
