Financial Services Regulation

Our financial services lawyers will help you strategically navigate the evolving and complex financial services regulatory environment.

Regulation is increasingly complex and places heavy burdens and restrictions on how financial institutions may operate. Our experienced team advise and support senior management, in-house legal teams, compliance functions and front-line businesses to meet their objectives and mitigate risk.

We’ll help you develop and enhance your regulatory frameworks and control environments along with supporting your interactions with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

As a young and growing fintech company, there have been a number of legal matters that we have needed to manage; such as client contracts, employment contracts and fund raising from investors. We’ve used Harper James for around a year and they have provided us with very valuable support through several lenses, not least in our funding round in late 2017, where we raised £1million and Harper James managed the legal side of the transaction.
