Top-ranked in Chambers UK and Legal 500

Our regulatory team is consistently and independently recognised by Chambers UK and Legal 500 as a leader in the market.

Our team of specialist and highly experienced lawyers act for individuals, organisations, corporates  and regulators, providing advice on regulatory compliance, investigations, adjudication, enforcement and prosecutions. We help clients respond to regulatory investigations and interventions when the continued operation or reputation of the individual or the business is at stake.

We advise and support professional and businesses in all aspects of their dealings with UK regulators and other agencies with regulatory enforcement powers across the accountancy and finance, legal and healthcare sections.

Ensuring compliance with the increasingly complex and pervasive nature of regulation in the UK requires expert advice and support. Whether you or your organisation needs help before or after a regulatory intervention, clear and decisive advice is required. With your reputation, ability to run your organisation or your ability to practise in jeopardy, we bring clarity in often stressful and emotional circumstances.

Many of our clients have complex legal problems that require the help of lawyers from across the firm, including those from our criminal litigation, employment, company and commercial, public law and dispute resolution teams. Our cross-practice approach ensures that clients receive seamless advice and that their legal problems are analysed from every necessary angle.
