Financial Services & Regulation

United Kingdom

The daily challenges you face in doing business in a highly regulated, cost-pressured environment mean you need advisers who have an unparalleled understanding of the regulators’ expectations and are commercial, practical and industry savvy.

With leading practices in the UK’s two biggest financial services centres, London and Edinburgh, our team combines wholesale and retail, contentious and non-contentious expertise across banking, insurance, asset management and financial intermediation. You can be assured we understand the regulatory context in which you operate and recognise the importance of finding commercial solutions.

Our specialist regulatory lawyers advise retail and wholesale financial services firms on managing regulatory risk and resolving and avoiding regulatory action and disputes.

Having represented firms in over 400 regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings, our team combines knowledge of regulated businesses with a clear understanding of what the regulators require.

We use that experience to help clients manage and grow their businesses through the development of new products, services and distribution channels.
