Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) was created specifically to investigate and prosecute wherever it suspects or identifies examples of misconduct in the financial markets. As the main regulator of the financial markets, it can bring criminal proceedings and regulatory enforcement proceedings.

Its scope goes beyond the individuals, companies and organisations it regulates. It can force anyone to attend an interview or produce documentation. The often complex nature of its investigations means that anyone that draws its attention will need specialist expert, experienced legal representation.

At Rahman Ravelli, our years of experience of dealing with the FCA’s predecessor the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and other investigating agencies stand us in good stead for dealing with the FCA. Having handled many complex, drawn-out cases involving huge amounts of money , our track record of success against many fraud prosecuting agencies means that we are equipped to provide strong, pro-active representation to anyone investigated by the FCA.

Whatever aspect of financial products the FCA is investigating a person over, we believe the best course of action is to launch a powerful, all-encompassing defence that employs our expertise and our experience of mis-selling cases.

If it is an individual or company being investigated by the FCA, we can employ our expertise in business crime cases to make sure they are given the best possible legal representation. We are also experienced in ensuring any potential conflicts of interest between a company and employee, should they both come under investigation, are handled appropriately.

Our specialist compliance experts can give the most appropriate advice on how to avoid any future problems with either the FCA or its sister organisation, the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA); which regulates banks, insurers and investment firms.

As a firm that has represented clients in cases involving hundreds of millions of pounds, our experience, negotiating skills and deep-seated legal expertise in this field make Rahman Ravelli the logical choice when you are faced with the FCA.
