7BR’s Financial Crime barristers offer a comprehensive and modern service to individuals, corporates, businesses, prosecuting authorities and regulatory bodies in the UK and abroad. Our expertise in civil and criminal fraud, financial services, regulation and related public law matters allows us to adopt a multi-disciplinary approach and provide highly strategic advice focussed on securing the best possible solution for the client.
Members of the team are currently instructed for and against the SFO and FCA in some of the biggest and most complex fraud and corruption investigations running. We advise on internal investigations, reporting obligations, the lawfulness of search and seizure warrants, Production Notices, DPA negotiations, Private Prosecutions, asset freezing and forfeiture and all other aspects relating to fraud & corruption. We have particular experience advising financial service providers, corporates and other businesses on AML/CFT compliance reviews and a growing specialism in cryptocurrency matters. 7BR has a prominent offshore and international practice, with members regularly advising and appearing in the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, Gibraltar, Cyprus, the Caribbean, and Hong Kong among other jurisdictions.
Within financial services, members are instructed by both regulators and also by leading solicitors on behalf of firms and individuals in connection with FCA enforcement investigations and enquiries. Members are currently instructed in many of the high profile regulatory issues relating to LIBOR manipulation, interest rates swaps mis-selling, breaches of the Listing Rules, breaches of the regulatory perimeter and market abuse. Members also advise on applications for FCA approval, regulatory gateway issues, skilled person reviews and supervisory interventions through the OIVOP procedure. Members also act in proceedings before the FRC, and the disciplinary committees of the ICAEW, ACCA, and CIPFA.
