Our team is highly regarded for their work in investigations brought by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
We have a wealth of experience representing clients who are subject to FCA investigations. The FCA has the power to conduct criminal and regulatory prosecutions. With the experience of our team, we are able to support you with both.
Our team consists of both civil and criminal lawyers and those specialising in disciplinary proceedings. We are well equipped to deal with all aspects related to these matters and can quickly draw together a team of experts who have seen and done it all before. In order to minimise disputation and reputation damage to your business, we are able to provide representation at all levels.
We have experience representing individuals subject to criminal, civil and regulatory investigations brought by the FCA. These include alleged breaches of the principles for business and approved persons, money laundering, misselling, market abuse and insider dealing.
We also conduct internal investigations on behalf of companies regulated by the FCA where allegations of misconduct and wrongdoing are raised internally. We provide clear and coherent advice throughout the investigatory process. And where required, we can assist with liaising with the regulating authority. From our experience, these internal investigations require sensitive handling and a quick response. We can provide you with that, whilst simultaneously offering comprehensive and strategic advice on the self-reporting process.
Our team is also well versed on joint and international investigations involving other enforcement agencies outside the UK.
