Our focus is on assisting regulated businesses and other providers of financial services to navigate the ever-increasing volume of financial legislation and regulation, including anti-money laundering, anti-bribery and corruption, sanctions, the Criminal Finances Act 2017, dawn raid planning, and FCA regulations, principles, and rules, in order to avoid the pain of regulatory breach, scrutiny and intervention.

We have been and continue to be involved in many of the most significant and high profile international white-collar crime and regulatory investigations of the last decade, including LIBOR.

Fulcrum’s vertically integrated structure means that we have the expertise to provide everything that a regulated entity needs, in order to comply with its obligations and avoid liability, from compliance advice through to acting as trial counsel for companies and executives facing prosecution.
