Charlotte is head of our UK Financial Services Regulatory group. She advises on EU Directives and Regulations that affect financial services institutions, and the Rules and Regulations of the FCA and the PRA.
Charlotte combines nearly two decades of experience as a financial regulatory partner at top-tier law firms, with in-house experience at both a national financial regulator and as General Counsel for a major UK asset management firm. Clients choose Charlotte because they know she’ll give advice that’s concise and easily understood. Charlotte’s clients range from large multinational conglomerates to specialist boutiques. She works with banks, payment services providers, investment and asset managers, brokers and other financial markets participants. She also advises non-financial institutions on how financial services regulation can affect them.
Charlotte advises on CRD IV, EMIR, PSD2, Payment Services Regulations, e-money legislation, pre-paid products, MiFID II, Market Abuse and Insider Dealing requirements and investigations from the FCA.
In 2018, Charlotte was shortlisted for a Women in Business award.
