- Regulatory & Compliance
Andrew advises a wide range of City, national and international businesses on regulatory issues, including financial services regulation, fraud and corruption, anti-money laundering, consumer protection, health and safety, freedom of information and data protection, environmental prosecutions and Coroner’s inquests.
Having previously been an investigatory lawyer and prosecutor for the Serious Fraud Office, Andrew has the perspective of both ‘gamekeeper and poacher’ which adds value to his advice on enforcement and prosecution cases and when conducting internal investigations for clients. Formerly a member of the specialist financial regulatory team at City firm SJ Berwin, Andrew has broad experience in contentious and non-contentious regulatory matters.
In their words
"Helping a client to develop its systems and procedures in a way that meets regulatory requirements, but also delivers long-term commercial benefits to the business, is a different challenge to defending a client in enforcement proceedings when something has gone wrong. My experience and perspective in handling these different types of case means I always have an eye on where a non-contentious matter may end up and on the process by which a contentious case developed, which provides a valuable benefit for the client."
