        Financial Services Regulation

        Using industry insight and commercial understanding to deliver the right solutions for your financial services transaction.

        Our financial services regulatory expertise spans new applications for authorisation, through to change of control and the wider issues affecting financial services organisations, such as disciplinary issues and market abuse.

        We act for UK and international clients ranging from banks and building societies, through to insurers, reinsurers, mortgage firms and other commercial lenders, asset managers and investors, payment service providers, clearing houses and rating agencies.

        We’re particularly known for our work on consumer credit, and for providing expert support in setting up new financial services businesses, as well as preparing businesses for sale.

        Our approach sets us apart. Whereas some firms advise from a technical stand-point we work hard to focus on your customer journey, understanding how your customers interact with your business and the regulatory challenges this presents.
