Most City law firms do not choose to advise senior individuals at investment banks, private equity firms, hedge funds, and elsewhere – preferring instead to act exclusively for the businesses themselves.
Lewis Silkin is different.
We have for many years been one of the leading City firms acting for senior executives in financial services.
We have an exceptional expertise in FCA and PRA regulatory issues, including advice on FCA approved person status, certification for “material risk takers”, and Remuneration Code issues. We have extensive experience in advising on matters such as planning team moves, challenging bonus awards, the preservation of co-investment and carry entitlements on departure, and fiduciary duties. On top of this, we litigate each year many of the sector’s most complex, and most valuable, whistleblowing and discrimination claims – with the great majority of such cases being brought to a successful pre-hearing settlement.
