Our Financial Services & Regulatory practice in Guernsey

Our Financial Services and Regulatory practice draws together our expertise on the conduct of regulated financial services, insurance and banking business in Guernsey.
We provide highly commercial and focused legal advice in relation to the full range of offshore regulatory issues and problems that arise for financial service providers, regulators and governments.
In the offshore arena, Guernsey has led the way in regulating its financial services industry. As a firm we have been actively engaged throughout that process, as Guernsey has introduced and enhanced its regulatory legislation in shaping the development of the law and working with the regulatory authorities.
We believe that this experience equips us to provide unique insights in order to meet our clients' needs. Our clients in this area include banks, investment businesses, trust companies, brokers and insurers.
Regulatory investigations often span the numerous jurisdictions in which our clients operate. We then either manage and co-ordinate the issues ourselves or we work alongside leading US/UK legal or accountancy practices in managing all problems and issues arising through to conclusion.
