Our experience

    We have extensive experience of advising clients facing enforcement action by regulators, defending clients facing disciplinary hearings and advising clients facing criminal investigations. We understand that the prospect of regulatory action can have serious implications for the survival of a business or for a professional’s practice and we recognise the need for urgent, specialist advice from expert lawyers.

    Many cases call for cooperation and engagement and we will work collaboratively with regulators to help our clients achieve the best results. Other cases call for a more robust approach and we will vigorously defend our clients at each stage of their case. We will draw upon our experience in this area to guide our clients through investigations and enforcement proceedings and advise them on the best approach to protect their interests.

    To speak to a member of our team, in confidence, please call 0203 816 9274. Alternatively please submit our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you urgently.
