Welcome to my website.  I am a barrister, returned to the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority after some three years on secondment at the European Securities and Markets Authority in Paris. My principal areas of practice are currently the external relations law of the EU, and WTO and international trade law, as they concern financial services regulation.

More information about me is in my profile here.

The site aims to contain and provide links to some materials which may be useful to financial services regulatory lawyers concerned with EU law and the legal implications of the United Kingdom’s intended withdrawal from the European Union.

This is an English-language website, but some of the entries may be in French.
