CASE STUDIES AND TESTIMONIALS
A Peerpoint consultant who recently joined our panel
When I started to explore consultancy as a career path, I knew I wanted a reputable law firm behind me, along with access to top quality work and the infrastructure to help me succeed. Peerpoint, being part of Allen & Overy, offered the strongest proposition in the market – their network and quality of clients is exceptional, plus the support and resources offered to consultants is a huge draw for me.
MiFID II implementation
A senior regulatory and compliance consultant took on a role with the legal team at a US investment bank to assist with their preparation for and implementation of MiFID II. Our consultant offers dedicated support in the implementation of the regulation, and works four days per week with one day from home, which enables her to balance family commitments.
From Peerpoint consultant to A&O partner
Peerpoint offered me the ability to work, on a project basis, with some of the premier lawyers in the Asian region. Now joining A&O as a partner to work in the restructuring and recovery group to further the regional expansion of our practice is a unique and tremendously exciting opportunity which reflects my experiences with Peerpoint and the high regard in which I hold A&O and our people”. Ian Chapman, senior Peerpoint consultant from 2016-2019, Hong Kong.
Employment law maternity cover
A senior employment consultant covered a year-long maternity leave in the employment legal team at a major technology company. Bringing in a Peerpoint consultant offered a clear benefit for our client: "You're looking for someone with a certain expertise and you want a lawyer who can hit the ground running. It's much easier to go to an organisation, like Peerpoint, that has a pool of potential candidates – much easier and much quicker."
Structuring reform project
Our consultant, an experienced corporate and M&A lawyer, supported a client on a structuring reform programme for their non-ring-fenced bank. The consultant has prepared a due diligence report to present to the Board. The project was a great success and the consultant was instrumental in its delivery. They were described as "a great team player and very positive".
Margin requirements project
Two Peerpoint consultants, both specialists in derivatives and structured finance, have been supporting a major investment bank in its implementation of margin requirements for uncleared derivatives. Both consultants have been supportive to the bank's implementation of margin requirements and their terms have been repeatedly extended in order to continue to support in reaching on-going deadlines.
