Our unrivalled multi-disciplinary regulatory team advises across the spectrum of regulatory work, from front-end regulatory advice on the corporate and fund formation side, to advising on contentious regulatory matters and economic crime issues. Clients benefit from our wide-ranging expertise, including that of counsel Daniel Maine who spent nine years working at the Financial Conduct Authority, and James Angus who is authorised to accept instructions as external counsel to the Economic Crime and Confiscation Unit.
