What is the FCA?

The FCA is a financial investigation agency that makes and enforces rules for the financial service industry. The FCA works with the police to eliminate criminal offences such as:

  • Money laundering
  • Fraud
  • Illegal financial promotions
  • Insider dealing
  • Misleading practices
  • Illegal scams

If you are under suspicion for these crimes, the FCA will inform you that they are launching an investigation into you and/or your business. The FCA then has the power to prosecute individuals and businesses who are found guilty of committing such crimes.

When should you seek legal advice?

You should contact Draycott Browne as soon as possible in any of the following situations:

  • The FCA has contacted you in any way
  • You are requested to attend an interview with the FCA
  • The FCA wants to prosecute you
  • You are involved in any type of FCA proceedings

We recommend contacting an experienced solicitor as soon as the FCA makes initial contact with you, but we will provide help to anyone, no matter how far along they are in FCA proceedings.
