About Daniel

Daniel acts for both FCA authorised and unauthorised clients active in the financial services sector and undertakes a range of contentious and non-contentious financial services regulatory work.

Daniel has experience in advising clients on complying with their regulatory requirements for both existing requirements and pending regulatory changes. Daniel is able to advise on a range of regulatory matters and queries in relation to the application of legislation such as the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 and the Consumer Credit Act 1974 on both corporate and consumer transactions. This includes the implication of such legislation on proposed consumer credit agreements and lending arrangements, as well as corporate asset sales arising from the administration and insolvency of corporate entities.

Daniel has significant experience in insurance matters and providing advice to a range of clients including insurers, policyholders and insurance brokers with regards to insurance coverage disputes and claims management. Daniel has particular experience in advising on professional indemnity policies, in addition to directors’ and officers’, corporate legal liability and trustee and individual liability policies. More recently, Daniel has assisted on a significant number of matters relating to business interruption insurance and assisting a range of clients with reviews into policy coverage for claims arising as a result of interruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent FCA test case.

Daniel also has significant experience in dealing with litigation on a range of matters from both a claimant and defendant perspective. These range from small claims less than £1,000 in value, through to multi-track matters in the High Court. Daniel has handled litigation on behalf of a wide range of clients, including insurers, accountants, and bookkeepers. Daniel is able to provide practical advice on the litigation process as a whole, including both the merits of beginning litigation and the process to be followed once litigation has begun, as well as advising on alternative dispute resolution and settlement options.

Daniel also has experience in advising on complaints made to the Financial Ombudsman Services and other such regulatory bodies, and is able to advise on options and procedures once complaints have been received.
