Ogier strives to ensure that our clients not only remain in compliance with their regulatory obligations but that they receive forewarning and practical advice regarding the implementation of regulatory proposals, initiatives and reforms.
We have long-standing and professional relationships with industry regulators in the BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg which is coupled with our wealth of experience assisting some of the world's largest financial services businesses in implementing change to meet the requirements of new laws and regulations. We pride ourselves on balancing astute technical compliance with realistic practical implementation advice.
Ogier regularly advises clients on registration, licensing and regulatory compliance. Our team has helped to shape much of the law and regulations that impact our clients, be it through active participation in various industry bodies and regulatory committees, through consultation on new laws or direct dialogue with the regulatory body in each of our jurisdictions.
We also advise regulated businesses on contentious regulatory matters including investigations and enforcement actions, assisting with all phases of the investigation process. Our team has the capacity to assist and advise in the prosecution and defence of financial crime issues, on sanctions-related issues, in self-initiated internal investigations and more generally on cross-border investigations, often working on such matters alongside onshore and in-house legal teams.
Our regulatory experts have a deep understanding of the particular sector of the financial services industry in which they advise, be it banking, insurance, securities investment business, corporate administration or investment funds. In this way, we stand out from our competitors in that our regulatory lawyers are also specialists in the applicable sector, rather than regulatory generalists.
Our regulatory team spans Ogier's jurisdictions, allowing our regulatory experts to undertake cross-jurisdictional analysis and provide a holistic solution, a useful tool where a multi-national client is facing similar regulations in different jurisdictions.
