Regulation plays an ever-growing and increasingly important role in how companies function.


You get the benefit of rounded, practical advice – not just the finer points of law. Our lawyers are also directors of businesses and third sector organisations. Some of them have worked in-house in heavily regulated industries. We know how frustrating it can be to negotiate that thin line between regulation and business development. Michael, our Founder and CEO, was once governance director of a major financial network, and brings a unique perspective to regulation.

As a result, there’s constant tension between fresh ideas and ticking the right regulatory boxes. As a business ourselves, we understand your pain.


We know just how carefully negotiations need handling if you’re going to achieve that ‘yes’ you’ve worked so hard towards. We’ve learned the benefits of building proactive and collaborative relationships with the regulators.


Prevention is better than cure. In other words, being meticulous and watertight first time around helps you avoid closer scrutiny down the line. We apply this quality principle to how we run Carbon Law Partners, and it works.


We won’t just answer the question you asked. As experts, we’ve learned most clients have many more questions than they ever ask, and the answer to one question will often generate several more. So don’t worry – we’ll tell you what you need to know and consider, well in advance.


We look further than traditional law firms, simply because we work differently and have wider insights. So we consider the business angle as much as the letter of the law.

Whether you have an issue relating to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or Charity Commission. Or are a healthcare practitioner having problems with a regulatory body such as the British Dental Association (BDA) or British Medical Association (BMA). No matter what, we can help.
