Practice Areas

Alan has acted in relation to some of the most high-profile and complex multi-jurisdictional investigations commenced by criminal and regulatory enforcement agencies in the UK, USA, Europe and Far East. His work has included advising in relation to allegations of bribery and corruption, insider dealing, tax evasion and manipulation of financial markets.

Alan is a senior associate in the regulatory litigation practice group. He advises corporate entities and individuals in the context of regulatory and criminal investigations, commenced by agencies such as the Serious Fraud Office and Financial Conduct Authority.

Alan's work regularly involves allegations of misconduct on financial markets. Recently, he has advised individuals in respect of the global LIBOR and foreign exchange (forex) investigations, including both individuals who are the subject of regulatory and criminal allegations of market misconduct, and senior managers who have been investigated by regulators for alleged oversight failures. He has also been instructed to advise individuals providing assistance to agencies including the SFO, FCA, PRA, CFTC and US Department of Justice (DoJ).

Much of Alan's work has a significant international dimension. Recent instructions include advising clients faced with extradition, mutual legal assistance requests, extra-territorial criminal liability and asset freezing and recovery.
