FCA sharpens focus on crypto cowboys
Jill specialises in advising individuals facing investigation and prosecution by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). She has developed a particular expertise in representing those being prosecuted for insider dealing.
Jill has recently returned from a 12 month secondment at the FCA where she gained valuable experience of its approach to the investigation and prosecution of serious financial offences. She has also advised two defendants who faced insider dealing charges in large, complex prosecutions brought by the FCA (then known as the FSA). Both were acquitted on all counts.
In addition, Jill has advised numerous individuals facing both compelled and under caution interviews by the FCA and those being investigated for market abuse, criminal market manipulation and numerous offences under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).
In respect of both "white collar" and general criminal allegations, Jill has extensive day-to-day experience in assisting clients at the police station and provides robust and tactically astute advice in the critical early stages of a criminal investigation. She advises clients facing the full spectrum of criminal charges, from driving offences to GBH, rape, sexual assault and other serious offences.
Cyber-crime also forms an increasing part of Jill’s practice. She specialises in advising individuals and corporates facing investigation or prosecution for cyber-related offences, including computer-enabled fraud, malicious communications, data protection breaches and other forms of computer misuse. Jill has written and spoken widely on this topic and has a particular interest in the regulatory and criminal aspects of cryptocurrencies and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).
