Regulatory Disputes and Investigations
Investigations can cause serious financial and reputational harm to a business. When representing clients under investigation, we identify regulatory issues at the earliest possible stage and seek to ensure that, where possible, regulators do not take action. When regulatory action is unavoidable, we take steps to ensure that such action is proportionate.
We are well used to representing clients under investigation and litigating regulatory disputes.
