DRS' five partners (four of which are qualified lawyers of significant PQE) have a collective experience with respect to the capital and derivatives markets of over 70 years. Many of DRS' senior consultants also have a solid foundation in these markets and their respective documentation practices and standards, gained either through legal private practice or as in-house counsel for investment banks or buy-side institutions. The DRS knowledge base additionally extends comprehensively from front through back office functions.
A good deal of DRS' current and previous project experience is typically in response to changing regulatory requirements or to ensure that regulation-driven policies are implemented across a client's relevant departments. Accordingly, DRS partners and consultants are abreast of new developments across all of their specialised fields in the financial markets.
The DRS Training Service offering is designed to provide quality training to the specifications of clients either on-site at their offices or off-site for example, at DRS offices. It can be personalised for a smaller group or even individuals depending on the level or actual client need.
DRS materials, lecture notes and hand-outs are typically provided at training sessions and these reference items can be designed in advance to ensure coverage of all intended topics and depth of detail for take-away and reference purposes.
DRS has previously provided training on ISDA Master Agreements and Credit Support Annexes, repo and stock lending agreements, commodities documentation, current trends in collateral management documentation, as well as a variety of other topics.
