We will attend and represent your firm, management & individuals at Meetings, Inquiries/Hearings and Settlements with the Central Bank on both contentious and non-contentious issues.
Non-contentious - examples include meetings with the Central Bank on supervisory inspections, PRISM, authorisations, amendments to licences, winding-up of businesses, self-reporting of potential regulatory breaches & general business/regulatory matters.
Contentious - new enhanced supervisory and enforcement powers and more onerous regulatory obligations on firms & individuals means that regulated persons need to think carefully about exposure to legal and regulatory liability when potential contentious matters arise. In this area you need the experience of advisers who have worked at the Central Bank and other regulators to help advise and strategically navigate the right outcomes.
