Regulatory Advice

New Leaf Advisory has access to a team of over 80 barristers that specialise in all aspects of financial regulation, compliance, banking and crime.

The financial services sector is experiencing a period of regulatory change unlike any in recent history.

Against a backdrop of remedial action, the finance sector also faces significant demands to meet new regulatory requirements.

Consultations around the structure of regulation of specific markets are ongoing, placing onus on financial firms to adopt a clear programme of change management.

Our barristers are all still currently in practice at the Bar and are considered to be the leading experts in their fields by Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

One of our Directors, Adam Wiseman, is an expert in economic crime and has over 20 years experience at the Bar and practises from the leading criminal and regulatory chambers in the UK.

His chambers have been involved in prosecuting every single FSA prosecution in the country since 2011 and every single prosecution conducted by the FCA ever. Equally, his chambers have defended in a very significant number of the highest profile cases and his set has been recommended year after year by the leading directories.

Notable cases include: Hayes, GuinnessBCCIWickes plcBute MiningCo-operative WholesaleBAE SystemsAlpine Double GlazingAsil NadirMaxwellAnchor ButterJubilee LineKent PharmaceuticalsRedknapp, the Clico Inquiry and Innospec 2.
