    Daniel has three decades of experience advising on the entire width of the UK financial regulation sector.   Many clients need advice on how to become and remain licensed by the UK Regulators;  others are looking for advice on regulatory avoidance.   Daniel also helps clients with the structuring and documentation of investment funds and other structures, both in the UK and offshore, and the marketing of these to UK investors.

    Outside of work, Daniel is a keen singer, musician and composer, is in the middle of writing a ground-breaking book on biblical commentary, has completed three marathons and plays a decent game of chess.
