We’re APPROVED — a licensing service for financial services companies. We’re part of Buckley, a law firm with unparalleled experience in financial services. Both informed and unique, our technology-enabled approach is designed to make the approval and compliance process smarter, more predictable, and more streamlined than ever before.
In addition to our legal and industry knowledge, we bring a fierce commitment to blending the best people, processes, and technology. We’re here to make licensing better.
A smarter process.
We’ve worked within the contours of financial licensing for years and know the systems exceptionally well. We know the rules. We know the nuances. And we know the common missteps that most organizations encounter along the way. We read between the lines. APPROVED understands the needs of regulators and what lies beyond the written requirements. We anticipate regulatory requests and create workflows that result in fewer deficiencies, fewer snags, and smoother applications.
A broader perspective.
Our legal experience does more than add credibility to our representation. We see and understand the complexities of our clients’ needs in ways that others can’t match. The art of licensing and compliance is a marathon made up of sprints, and hurdles appear at every step along the way. Rules and regulations in this industry shift overnight, and we are determined to remain ahead of them. APPROVED stays on top of licensing and process change, and helps you navigate it to remain compliant and open for business.
A better experience.
The licensing process can be arduous, but we are here to make it as fluid as possible. Obtaining licenses is a necessary first step in running a business, and maintaining them is absolutely critical to staying open. APPROVED can’t change the laws, but we can help you navigate the processes that surround them. We offer cost certainty in pricing, a smarter workflow, and sophisticated knowledge and support. In a process that can often be both impersonal and invasive, we are bringing back the human touch.
At Buckley LLP we focus on three key areas — financial services, government enforcement, and litigation — and do them exceptionally well. How well?
