Our global derivatives team advises swap dealers, prime brokers and other financial institutions on issues of netting and collateral in relation to the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc (ISDA) and repo/securities lending agreements. 

The team also advises on issues such as capacity, authorisation and enforceability against specific counterparties.

We currently provide the Cayman Islands legal opinions to ISDA, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (fka the Bond Market Association), the International Capital Market Association, the Bundesverband Deutscher Banken (Federal Association of German Banks), the Futures and Options Association, the Foreign Exchange Committee and the British Bankers' Association.

Our Irish practice has developed a particular expertise advising Irish-established funds (including Common Contractual Funds and UCITS) on netting and segregation issues.
