Contentious Regulatory Advice
One area of modern life where the legal profession makes an important contribution is in holding the Government and its various agencies to account. Our lawyers have the skills to advise individuals and businesses wishing to address or even challenge the requirements made of them by bodies in a position of authority, such as the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
We act for numerous providers and consumers active in Jersey’s financial services sector. The technical advice traditionally given has been supplemented by the need also to consider its regulatory implications. No regulatory body is infallible, and neither are its advisors.
We can help clients to assess the relevant facts against the policy and detailed interpretation of the relevant legislation, rules, and case law. If dealings with certain professional bodies are handled incorrectly, the financial and reputational ramifications for an individual or a business can be severe. At such times you need a trusted and level-headed legal advisor on your side. If court proceedings do arise, we provide our clients with extensive forensic expertise throughout the court process.
Viberts’ team is in my view impressive. Their partners are first rate, and provide a service on Jersey that is at least the equal of the very top firms operating in comparable areas of law in London.
