Regulatory & Compliance

Keeping up to date with an evolving regulatory landscape can be challenging even for the most sophisticated of businesses, but if you get it wrong, you run the risk of facing investigations, enforcement action and even significant financial and reputational exposure.

Our Regulatory & Compliance experts have a great deal of experience advising clients on how to stay on the right side of the rules. But if things do go wrong, we can help.

We have decades of experience in a huge array of regulatory compliance investigations, as well as defending civil and criminal proceedings brought by the authorities.  This includes the police, Serious Fraud Office, HM Revenue and Customs, the Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency, Food Standards Agency, Trading Standards and the Financial Conduct Authority.

We’re proud of the expertise in our team and with former FCA, SFO and Environment Agency investigators as well as former in-house lawyers, we really are market-leading.

Our track record and professional backgrounds mean that we have insight into both the regulators’ mindset and our clients’ fundamental needs and we offer in-house investigation and advocacy services as well.

We work on some of the biggest regulatory mandates in the UK, providing our clients with a fully integrated Regulatory team: we don’t believe in silos and we know that when we work collaboratively, we have the skills to deliver the very best results, every time.

We understand that every client is unique and our hands on approach means we can tailor our service to meet your needs.  Our strategic, practical and commercial advice is always given in an easily digestible format and we know that when you need advice you need it quickly – so clear and effective communication underpins everything we do.

When we work with you, we’ll also help you plan so that you can avoid potential pitfalls, after all prevention is better than cure. Whether drafting agreements to reflect regulatory responsibilities or training you on how to deal with a dawn raid, we’ll work with you hand in hand, protecting your interests at every turn. And with our rapid response incident management service available 24/7 365 days a year, you can relax knowing that even if the worst happens, we’ve got your back.
