Corporate Regulation and Compliance

Our regulatory and compliance lawyers focus on ensuring clients have access to the regulatory knowledge and insight they need to operate smoothly and effectively in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.

We advise on the full scope of regulatory and compliance issues, including both contentious and non-contentious matters. Recent work has ranged from advising on the implementation of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), through to assisting in the establishment of investment platforms and advising banking institutions on changes to client due diligence and anti-money laundering regimes.

We have also advised on a number of the largest and most complex regulatory investigations involving our jurisdictions and we regularly help businesses deal with increased scrutiny in relation to corporate governance standards. Our clients in this area include global institutions, boutique providers, directors and former directors, funds and other regulated entities that are subject to investigation, disclosing their own breaches and/or implementing remediation initiatives.
