Understanding financial services regulation is one thing; applying it properly is not always so easy. We pride ourselves on delivering commercially focussed, practical advice which reflects your business priorities. We know you don’t want acres of complex legal advice, addressing every subsection of the statute, which you are left to decipher. We deliver the documents you need to trade in accordance with the law and guidance and practical advice on how to implement it. We can draft your policies and procedures, train your staff and even audit and monitor your compliance if you wish. Our team does not operate out of ivory towers; it includes former industry practitioners who have experience at the delivery end of financial services.
