Practical regulatory & investigative advice in an unpredictable world
We offer clients a range of technical and practical regulatory advice both locally and regionally, wherever they are based
Our regulatory team is made up of experienced contentious and non-contentious professionals, including former regulators, technical advisors and seconded compliance officers. They provide multidisciplinary advice across all business areas and advise clients on regulatory and compliance issues.
This includes defending all aspects of enforcement proceedings and updating and training clients on legislative developments.
We work alongside in-house compliance teams and have particular experience advising on financial crime, including fraud, bribery, money laundering, cartel activity and breach of sanctions; and have represented defendants in some of the largest fraud claims of recent years.
Our active and informed approach ensures our clients can operate effectively, whilst protecting their business interests.
With a proven track record of dealing with complex, high-profile white-collar crime cases, our clients routinely entrust us with their most sensitive matters.
Our financial crime experts are experienced in defending complex financial markets and white-collar crime cases. The team includes regulatory and financial crime specialists who have worked on many investigations into financial institutions, including banks, inter-dealer brokers and hedge funds.
We have acted for and against governments, banks, insurers and individuals, and against the police and the Serious Fraud Office, regarding matters of theft, fraud, dishonesty, money laundering, and insider dealing. In recent years, we have acted in some of the largest, most high profile cases in this arena with skill and discretion.
We also understand the commercial impact of enforcement and several members of the team have gained further insight by spending several months with the Serious Fraud Office.
