We are a go-to law firm in the financial services sector, with many of the UK’s major banks, international banks, specialist lenders, building societies, investors and fintechs choosing us as a legal adviser.
Our proactive approach to providing insight and advice upon future risks and solutions enables us to help you navigate the challenges of regulatory scrutiny, new funding models, rapid digital innovation and heightened operational risk.
Many of our people have been seconded into client legal teams and have worked in industry. A number of our partners have also previously worked for the enforcement division of the FCA. This gives us a unique perspective on the environment in which our clients operate, and how the regulator might approach industry developments.
Our deep industry experience, from over 30 years' advising major banks and other financial services firms, has allowed us to develop a unique and innovative approach to resourcing, pricing and use of technology. We continue to invest heavily in building legal and non-legal solutions to support clients' businesses in the way they need.
