Financial Services Regulatory Lawyer

As one of the few dedicated Regulatory teams in Leeds, this is a great opportunity to develop your legal knowledge and skills across a broad and interesting range of fantastic quality work and clients

We are looking for technically proficient and ambitious regulatory lawyers who are keen to deal with big ticket financial services/consumer finance/payment services work, from either private practice or in-house.  An understanding of the FCA regime is preferred, but applicants with some experience who are keen to diversify into financial services regulation are welcome and will be given full training and support. Sound legal analysis, client management and drafting skills are essential.  

What we can offer?

The power to own and drive your career. You will join an ambitious team handling regulatory work for national and international clients including banks, building societies and a range of other businesses including funds, alternative lenders, brokers, debt administration and debt collection firms.

Walker Morris is an independent law firm and we do things differently from the other national firms.  Candidates will command a market-leading salary plus benefits with significant opportunity for advancement. We offer agile working opportunities and are open to applications from lawyers living outside the Yorkshire region.

It is truly a unique opportunity to join a vibrant team in a specialist practice area working alongside Chambers recognised leading practitioners.  With the right mix of confidence, drive and ambition you will have the scope to build client relationships, carve out a reputation and capitalise on excellent opportunities for rapid advancement.  The people who determine your career trajectory work alongside you every day, unlike many other firms.

The team, headed by Jeanette Burgess, is collaborative and inclusive.  We offer strong support, great learning opportunities and genuine freedom for you to thrive and reach your potential. Our environment is free of bureaucracy and micro-management.

What work can we offer?

Clients of our Regulatory team include major international businesses in all sectors and many household names where we provide ongoing support on a trusted advisor basis. Examples of work include:

  • undertaking regulatory due diligence on the acquisition of a £235m financial services lending business

  • defending an FCA enforcement case brought against a firm and individual directors in respect of breaches of the FCA Handbook
