Adam is a Partner in the Finance & Banking Group.
He leads the Firm's highly regarded practice defending clients against the financial services regulatory bodies. For some 25 years, he has defended some of the biggest enforcement cases to emerge, ranging from the enforcement proceedings brought in relation to Barings in the 1990's to acting in the LIBOR and Forex investigations over recent years, and others not yet public. He knows the FCA prosecution well and has practical hands on experience in front of the decision makers. He also has extensive experience in cross jurisdictional matters that involve, for example, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Justice (DoJ). In addition to defending contested actions, his work often takes place in the pre investigation and pre enforcement stages, helping clients protect themselves against future possible regulatory action. Adam's practice also includes a great deal of experience representing clients in front of a wide variety of other business regulators and enforcement authorities. He represents both individuals and institutions.
Adam also leads the firm's Professional Discipline practice, advising professionals such as accountants, lawyers, insolvency practitioners and pension trustees who are facing challenge or investigation by regulatory or enforcement bodies.
