Overview

We are well known advisers to companies in the financial services industry who find themselves under the spotlight for regulatory or criminal matters.

Having worked on landmark financial crime cases, we are well placed to advise on corporate criminal liability issues and we are trusted to guide companies through the process of investigations, self-reporting and negotiating with prosecutors to achieve the most favourable outcome. Our diverse client base spans FTSE and other listed or international companies to traditional smaller enterprises.

Our clients have included  brokerage houses, London branches of overseas institutions, IFAs, fintech companies, cryptocurrency providers, accountancy firms and insurers.

Our team of expert lawyers has an impressive track record of successfully defending institutions facing regulatory misconduct, disciplinary breach and criminal investigations conducted by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

We conduct internal investigations to identify issues and scope risks, advising on whether and, if so, how best to self-report to the authorities. Our lawyers have un-rivalled experience of deferred prosecution agreements, and we can advise you on the process, your best strategy for achieving one and then negotiate the agreement.
