Association of Professional Compliance Consultants

The body for compliance consultants who advise firms regulated in the UK.

The APCC is active in enhancing the professional standards of compliance consultants and is recognised as a trade body by the FCA and other regulators. This provides our members with significant benefits in terms of direct access to the Regulators as well as business leads.  The APCC often works in conjunction with the FCA to pilot or test new initiatives, and we also provide with valuable feedback on specific subjects as requested by them.

Withers LLP

Withers LLP is the leading international private client law firm for FCA regulated senior executives and FCA regulated owner managed firms. Led by the former FSA Authorisation and Approvals function lead in-house lawyer, we advise FCA and PRA regulated firms and their senior managers in relation to all aspects of their individual and corporate FCA regulated relationships.  We provide a “cradle to grave” legal service including any white collar crime compliance and/or insolvency considerations (for which we use dedicated specialist teams). We were the first UK law firm to make a successful judicial review of a FSA Enforcement action and the first UK law firm to establish in the Upper Tribunal that a lack of integrity finding does not automatically merit a FCA ban.
