About Me

Cyrus has a broad range of financial services regulatory experience, having advised on some of the market's most critical and sizeable projects, transactions and investigations. 

His growing client base includes international corporate and investment banks, custodians, investment managers, FMIs and market associations.

Cyrus guides clients on the impact and implementation of the latest financial services legal developments (eg recovery and resolution planning, bank structural reform and MiFID II) as well as regulatory aspects of M&A, IPOs, restructurings and other transactions involving financial institutions. He also regularly advises clients in the areas of prime brokerage and custody services, and the more specific areas of short selling and benchmark regulation.

Whether working on- or off-site for his clients or with other local advisers abroad, Cyrus enjoys becoming part of the team and brings a practical perspective as well as technical expertise. He has spent time on secondment within the prime brokerage groups of two leading investment banks and at our Berlin office.

He has written for The Lawyer and regularly presents on financial services regulatory issues.
