4 Pump Court’s Financial Services team is widely considered to be at the cutting edge of regulatory law in the financial services sector.
Our barristers have substantial experience of financial services litigation and regulation both in this jurisdiction and overseas. We are regularly instructed in landmark and leading cases across the financial services sector including regulatory investigations; challenges to supervisory and enforcement decisions before the Regulatory Decisions Committee and the Upper Tribunal; judicial review of regulatory action; actions in the High Court involving financial services issues and commercial and banking litigation more generally, and; appellate work in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.
Our clients include regulators, the regulated and those on the cusp of the regulated sphere. Regulatory instructions emanate from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Financial Ombudsman Service, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and overseas regulators and stock exchanges. Private instructions typically come from financial institutions, including asset managers, banks, hedge funds, insurers and reinsurers and from independent financial advisors, other businesses and individuals.
Areas of expertise include:
Internationally, we have substantial experience in advising in respect of matters in offshore jurisdictions including Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man, and further afield in Dubai, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Qatar and Singapore.
Our offshore work encompasses acting and advising on behalf of regulators, stock exchanges, businesses and individuals operating in the regulated sector in respect of supervisory and enforcement action and broader commercial disputes. We also have particular expertise in cross-border issues and passporting.
