    Regulatory & Investigations

    They are hugely professional, reassuringly flexible and able to handle matters both large and small
    Client quote, Chambers 2016

    As the scope and complexity of regulation increases, trading clients require constant cross border regulatory support and compliance advice across a number of different regulatory regimes.

    International trading companies are particularly vulnerable to regulatory challenge as they often operate in “challenging” jurisdictions. The consequences of non-compliance, or inadequate risk management, include high financial penalties and substantial reputational damage. We recognise that managing risk is central to our clients’ strategic and business objectives and advise a number of major players in the commodities sector.

    Our regulatory team, like our clients’ compliance and risk management teams, is multidisciplinary and drawn from across our international offices.  Working alongside in-house compliance teams we advise clients on regulatory and compliance issues including trade sanctions, corruption and malpractice, and defend them on all aspects of enforcement proceedings.

    In today's turbulent investment climate, we advise on the relevance of comprehensive investment treaty planning (when structuring or re-structuring investments) as part of a risk management strategy.
