Dr. Philipp Riedl focuses his practice on investment management. He structures and documents regulated investments for both retail and institutional investors. These investments comprise structured notes, including bonds payable to bearer and registered bonds, as well as bonded loans, securitization solutions, and special AIFs.
In addition, he advises on the issuing, distribution and marketing of financial instruments, as well as on ongoing legal and transactional issues related to the law of negotiable instruments and investment law.
Another key area is legal guidance on derivatives and repurchase agreements (“repos”), particularly where national and international master agreements apply. He also assists in creating complex documentation for OTC transactions (“confirmation”), including swaps.
Furthermore, he supports his clients in the context of registrations under the German Banking Act (KWG), administrative procedures and interventions, the supervision of legal issues of payment and e-money (e-commerce, FinTech), and other regulatory matters.
Philipp Riedl joined K&L Gates in July 2016.
