Regulation

Robust and focused insights

When it comes to regulatory matters, Ardent Chambers are regularly called on to advise both financial services providers and individuals. Our advocates, having previously worked for both the Law Officers’ Department and the Jersey Financial Services Commission, are well placed to provide early, constructive advice when Jersey authorities decide to commence an investigation or take further action. The uncertainty, complexity and longevity of these cases typically requires members of Chambers to be instructed as soon as an issue arises, to ensure that the competing commercial, corporate governance and regulatory interests can be balanced. We have a strong track record of positive outcomes in advising businesses and individuals in respect of investigations by the Commission.

Our Chambers style set up means that we can act for both the company and a director or employee in the same case, if there is a conflict of interest requiring separate representation. We often see cross over between regulatory issues and employment issues that run in parallel and we are able to provide appropriate advice in respect of these dual sensitive issues, if they arise.

We provide advice on all areas of regulatory law but specifically:

  • Compliance with AML/CFT and regulatory provisions
  • Money laundering
  • Bribery and corruption
  • Terrorist financing
  • International sanctions
  • Corporate governance/risk management
  • Tax information exchange (TEIAs)
