Financial services and markets regulation
We have a substantial financial services practice with extensive experience of advising insurance companies, intermediaries, corporate finance firms, private banks and the Office of Fair Trading on all areas including asset management, retail finance, white-collar crime, wealth management and MiFID.
The financial services industry has never been more complex. Markets and products evolve daily against a continually developing regulatory backdrop. Customers and counterparties are increasingly litigious. Misconduct in the market and dealings with client assets can incur criminal liabilities.
As from 1 April 2013, Eversheds LLP was appointed to the Skilled Person Panel in the following areas: Governance, Controls & Risk Frameworks; Conduct of Business; and Financial Crime.
We have experience in the London Stock Exchange’s international AIM market investigations, advising both Nomads and AIM-listed companies in AIM investigations. Our financial services specialists have the experience and understanding of AIM investigations to guide clients through the process with minimal stress and disruption to the business.
