Dovetailing members' experience of serious and complex financial crime and professional disciplinary proceedings, members are regularly instructed to advise and act for firms and individuals working in the financial services sector. Advisory work often includes potential liability under the criminal law in parallel with regulatory breaches of FSMA 2000, e.g. insider dealing, market abuse, fraud and the withdrawal of authorisation.
The expertise of our team is gained from appearances before the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal, and one member who joined chambers after a successful trading and advisory career in the City.
Members of the team can be instructed directly by individual traders and FSA approved persons to advise and act on their behalf.
