Regulatory and compliance
Our expert Regulatory & Compliance Team includes former FSA and SFO investigators and former in-house lawyers, giving us valuable insight into both regulators’ mindsets and clients’ needs.
Our expert team has extensive experience advising clients in connection with regulatory investigations and defending civil and criminal proceedings brought by various authorities including the police, the Serious Fraud Office, the DTI, the OFT, HM Revenue and Customs, the Health and Safety Executive, the Food Standards Agency, Trading Standards and the Financial Services Authority.
We provide practical, commercial advice in an easily digestible form. Clear and effective communication is key to what we do. Whether drafting agreements to reflect regulatory responsibilities or dealing with a dawn raid, we are experienced and nimble enough to keep ahead of the game, protecting your interests at every turn.
We understand that good corporate governance requires the effective management of regulatory risks from board level down. This means keeping abreast of legislative change and ensuring all relevant compliance policies and practices, reinforced by comprehensive training, are kept up to date. Effective compliance does not mean zero failure. Even the best-run companies breach regulations. No organisation is immune from human error or oversight.
The team has built up an enviable list of UK and international clients by delivering what we promise, when we promise it. We have forged close working relationships with our longstanding clients and a keen understanding of their business needs to enable us to work as one team to get them where they want to be as speedily and efficiently as possible.
