Mountford Chambers’ unrivalled depth of experience in fraud and financial crime has led to our barristers undertaking considerable work before VAT and HMRC tribunals, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber) and the various regulatory bodies for the finance and accountancy professions.

Several barristers have been appointed to sit on disciplinary panels, including for the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

We have acted for and against banks, brokers, fund managers, IFA’s, mortgage and insurance brokers, pension providers as well as companies and private individuals facing disciplinary action. Many cases involve complex investigations, and our specialist barristers are familiar with the regulations and procedures that govern the finance sector.

Our barristers have also provided advice to regulated professionals and entities on sanctions such as prohibition notices, an on-going compliance with FCA rules and COBS. Mountford barristers have also been involved in ‘Skilled Person’ reviews under s. 166 FSMA into matters including risk assessments, management of investment portfolios and the selling of interest rate hedging products.
