Financial Services Regulation

Financial Services Regulation

Overview

Being at the forefront of market developments for over 20 years is what it takes to secure recognition as one the City’s leading and most influential financial services regulatory practices. This allows our team to influence the development of financial services regulation at a national and supranational level.

The depth of our experience stems from routinely advising on complex projects that have market significance and international reach. We have established a reputation as the go-to practice for cutting-edge advice, advising on the latest changes in this fast-moving marketplace.

We are particularly renowned for our expertise in the asset management sector (our clients are some of the industry's largest, global players, who collectively manage over US$4.5 trillion worth of assets) and our financial infrastructure work, advising clients who are responsible for transactions involving trillions of pounds of financial assets on a daily basis.

The strength of our team is evidenced by our engagement with government, regulators, trade bodies and expert groups to influence the development of policy and the implementation of law and regulation impacting our clients. We work closely with industry associations and expert market groups to develop practical responses to UK and EU legislative developments, including:

  • British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA)
  • InvestEurope
  • Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and its Alternative Credit Council
  • The City of London Law Society (CLLS)
  • The Financial Markets Law Committee (FMLC).

On the occasions when difficult judgements are required, we do not shy away. Clients know that they can trust us with their most difficult and sensitive discussions. Knowledge of each client and an understanding of enforcement priorities informs all our advice.

When investigations and enforcement action occur, our team of experts can advise in all areas of internal and external investigations, expert reviews and disputes. Some of the most high-profile investigations of recent times have resulted in our appointment to assist.
