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."
