National law firm Russell Jones & Walker has launched a new consultancy arm looking to advise the financial services industry on regulatory issues.
The new FSA Unit will combine Russell Jones & Walker's experience in employment and litigation to help the industry deal with the FSA's regulatory framework.
The team will be based in the London office but will draw upon expertise in a number of specialist areas.
RJ&W partner and the head of the unit Rod Fletcher says: “The full scope of the Financial Services & Markets Act is beginning to bite and we are seeing a growing need for integrated advice in the employment, regulatory and criminal fields. The new unit pools our expertise across these disciplines and will act primarily for individuals.”
