Rebecca Dulieu



Rebecca Dulieu is a financial services lawyer based in London. She advises clients on contentious matters, including regulatory intervention and enforcement proceedings in relation to both the retail and wholesale markets.

Prior to joining the firm, Rebecca spent more than four years working in the FCA's Enforcement & Market Oversight Division, initially as an investigator and case team lawyer in the Retail and Regulatory Investigations department, and subsequently as in-house lawyer in the Law, Policy and International department. During this time Rebecca worked on a number of high profile investigations such as the joint FCA and PRA investigation into Barclays and its CEO Jes Staley (the first case brought by the FCA and PRA under the Senior Managers Regime), and the FCA's investigation into Standard Life Assurance Limited for failures related to non-advised sales of annuities. As a lawyer within the Law and International team, Rebecca advised FCA Enforcement case teams, and overseas financial regulators, in relation to international law enforcement cooperation and information sharing.

Before joining the FCA, Rebecca was a lawyer in the financial services regulatory team at RPC LLP where she advised clients on both contentious and non-contentious matters, including defending the FCA's enforcement in relation to CT Capital and P.P.I complaints handling, advising insurers on their regulatory exposures in connection with regulated complaints, and conducting Board Effectiveness Reviews for insurance intermediaries and Lloyds managing agents in respect of their compliance with Lloyd's, FCA and PRA obligations.
