A global investment bank needed to create a series of complex commercial agreements to service a new series of investment funds. The bank’s existing in-house lawyers had neither the capacity nor the requisite expertise required to tackle this challenge. They needed a flexible, cost efficient solution and to work with a lawyer with in-house expertise who could integrate with the investment bank’s legal and compliance teams. The lawyer needed to be able to navigate marker and regulatory development on high-value deals closely linked to the core business.
Axiom quickly identified and integrated a lawyer with funds experience to provide the expert legal and regulatory support the investment bank required. The lawyer was able to operate independently and provide immediate value by partnering with clearing houses. The lawyer also was able to advise on a variety of other legal matters needed to create the funds.
The Axiom lawyer provided support and execution expertise on the following agreement types:
The Axiom solution gave the investment bank’s in-house team the flexibility focus on day-to-day company matters while the Axiom lawyer provided expert support on a new product range. Due to Axiom’s performance quality and expertise the client was able to save $400,000, which provided the team an opportunity to re-engage the Axiom lawyer for an additional critical project providing Brexit support.
Upon the completion of the initial engagement, the Axiom lawyer was redeployed to support the client’s Brexit project. On that engagement they focused on the review of on-boarding legal documents including membership, participant agreements, rulebooks of the EU, international trading venues and platforms, exchanges, and central clearing counterparties in relation to various global markets businesses.
