If you are faced with a regulatory investigation, you could suffer significant reputational loss and long-term damage to your career and financial prospects. Rather than go-it-alone, it is vital to seek expert advice as soon as possible to avoid any potential legal or procedural pitfalls that might have serious, irreversible consequences as the matter proceeds.
From the outset, you need to ensure that you understand and protect your rights and legal and professional privileges. Also that you have the maximum time to plan the most effective response, and if necessary, defence, for the investigation.
