As the markets continually adjust to the ever-changing economic, political and regulatory conditions, our clients rely on our prompt legal and commercial advice across a range of "bet the farm" issues, typical for the dynamic and sophisticated nature of the banking industry. We are particularly known for advising top market players on complex investigations, and culture and conduct related matters, often involving dealing with the FCA and other regulators.


We regularly engage on behalf of our clients with regulators in the UK (including the FCA, PRA, HMRC, SFO, FOS), in America, across Europe, and around the globe, and have extensive experience in advising on the implication of both financial and non-financial misconduct.

We work in close partnership with our bank clients, acting as an extension of their in-house legal teams. We understand the complexity of their business and the regulatory framework underpinning strategic decisions and challenges they are facing.

  • Regulatory compliance
  • Cybersecurity and data privacy
