In its role as the main regulator of the financial markets, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has extensive powers allowing it to investigate businesses or professional individuals who have been accused of breaching the UK's financial codes of conduct.
An important tool in helping the FCA perform its role is the use of enforcement notices, which are published to inform the public about its findings, to act as a deterrent and to maintain transparency in its decision making. If you are presented with a warning notice from the FCA, the expert Fraud Solicitors at Wilford Smith can advise you in challenging this by presenting findings and evidence to the Regulatory Decisions Committee (RDC) and by offering legal support throughout your dealings with the FCA.
Warning notices will be issued when the FCA has carried out an investigation and has made a decision on the action that it feels is appropriate in your case. These notices inform companies in respect of the steps that the FCA intends to take to ensure that standards are maintained in the future, and this information may be published online. To protect your personal and professional reputation, you need the highest calibre legal representation at this time. Wilford Smith's Fraud Solicitors will vigorously challenge any erroneous findings on your behalf, meticulously collecting evidence to ensure your position is protected.
