We advise UK financial sector firms on regulatory issues.  The majority of our work is the provision of advice and consultancy services to firma authorised by the Financial Services Authority in relation to FSA rules.  In addition we advice some firms that are not authorised in relation to perimeter issues and whether their activities are likely to require authorisation.  We also advise firms in relation to related regulatory requirements such as those arising under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, related European Directives (such as the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) and the Money Laundering Regulations 2007.  In addition we provide advice on aspects of the FSA’s Listing Rules in so far as they apply to listed find vehicles. A significant part of our client base are venture capital, private equity and corporate finance participants that interact closely with the business angel community.
