Financial services and regulatory compliance and investigations work is an important and growing area of our practice. Obtaining regulatory approvals and licenses in the most efficient way is fundamental to the establishment of business for regulated entities. Bribery, money laundering and fraud are all subject to intense regulatory scrutiny. Enforcement agencies worldwide are responding to global pressure to raise standards and address corruption in international business with increasingly severe sanctions.
Our specialised investigations and business ethics team handles a wide variety of inquiries and investigations brought by various regulatory bodies. The team works closely with our highly rated non contentious regulatory and corporate lawyers to ensure that matters are dealt with effectively and efficiently and a full service is provided in all business areas. We also have good relationships with the regulators in jurisdictions where we operate.
We act for a wide variety of regulated and unregulated corporations and individuals. Clients for whom we act, or have acted in the recent past, include commercial and investment banks, insurance companies and brokers, public listed companies and their directors, the regulators and exchanges.
