Nikunj KiriLinklaters LLP

Linklaters LLP has a well-established reputation for advising multinational banks and asset managers on complex multijuristictional issues, handling the full range of both contentious and non-contentious matters. On the non-contentious side, areas of specialism include Brexit advice, ring-fencing and the growing fintech industry. Martyn Hopper leads the contentious and non-contentious financial regulatory teams respectively, which work closely together – an example being the ‘insightful and influential‘ Nikunj Kiri, who acts in both areas. Also notable is ‘bright, excellent communicator‘ Alison Wilson, who has extensive bank sector and contentious regulatory expertise. Focusing on non-contentious matters, Michael Kent is well regarded for handling projects involving consortia of banks or asset managers; while Peter Bevan has particular expertise in new product development, trading issues such as market abuse and regulatory structuring advice. Also notable are fintech specialist Harry Eddis; newly promoted Sebastian Barling; and Julia Dixon, who co-led the firm’s team advising PwC on the administration of stockbroker Beaufort Securities, which was placed into insolvency following an application by the FCA. On the contentious side the department has particular expertise in relation to enforcement investigations, as well as solo-PRA and joint PRA/FCA investigations in the wholesale banking and insurance sectors. Also recommended are counsels Alastair Holt and Elizabeth Dowd and managing associate Raza Naeem.
