Future developments in other practice areas considered relevant to banking and finance lawyers are included in this tracker. Some other practice areas also produce their own trackers.
Please note that this tracker does not cover all consultations relating to financial services regulation (including derivatives and capital markets regulation).

For comprehensive information on European Union (EU) and US financial services regulatory developments, see Practice Note: Timelines—financial services for a full list of all timelines produced by the Financial Services team. Those timelines track in detail developments in relation to key EU Directives and Regulations including the Fourth Money Laundering Directive (MLD4), the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD), the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and the Market in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II).
This tracker also does not cover cases. For information about the status of cases which are relevant, or may be of interest to, banking and finance lawyers, see Banking & Finance case tracker.
