Reflecting his expertise in financial services and regulatory issues, he has vast experience of acting for and against financial services professionals and firms (e.g. investment banks, hedge funds, insurers, product providers including pensions providers, fund managers and administrators, CIS operators, sponsors, stockbrokers, insurance brokers, financial advisers, directors and others). His instructions typically arise from a wide range of contexts including investment misselling, investment advice and fund management, banking, mergers and acquisitions, flotations and collective investment schemes.
