Regulatory

Nearly a decade after the financial crisis the regulatory environment is increasingly complex and often challenging for regulated businesses.

In our home jurisdictions we operate within sound regulatory frameworks and have long-standing and professional relationships with industry regulators in the BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Luxembourg.

Our multi-disciplinary team can help you navigate these increasingly regulated environments through each stage in the business lifecycle: start up and relocation, operation, expansion and change. Prevention of issues is preferable but where things have gone wrong, we provide effective solutions to clients including banks, major corporates, investment managers, fund administrators, trust companies and private clients.
