Howard Kennedy is delighted to introduce David Hamilton, a specialist in financial services and business crime compliance and enforcement matters. He has significant experience advising corporates and individuals in the context of high-profile investigations by the FCA, SFO, HMRC, and overseas law enforcement agencies (including cases involving market manipulation, money laundering, bribery & corruption, tax evasion, and regulatory systems and controls breaches) and associated remediation exercises, where appropriate. David also regularly advises clients in the context of internal investigations into alleged misconduct within their business, often with external regulatory/law enforcement involvement.

In terms of non-contentious advisory matters, David advises corporates across a broad range of sectors on regulatory systems and controls requirements, with a particular expertise in financial services regulation and application of the Money Laundering Regulations (advising a substantial number of clients on their compliance programmes, registration, and ongoing engagement with supervisory authorities). Recent instructions via our LAW network have included advising US entities as to whether their activities in the UK are subject to FCA authorisation or registration under applicable AML regimes. He looks forward to connecting with any of you and your clients with similar practices and needs and via the White Collar Crime Sub Group.
