Bovill was founded in 1999 by Ben Blackett-Ord and began as a small but specialist firm of compliance consultants. Based in London, Bovill was built up on a solid foundation of long-term clients for whom we provide compliance advice.

Today Bovill is a global financial services regulatory consultancy with offices in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and the US. We work with clients internationally on every element of regulation. We help firms build projects to respond to significant regulatory change, or give them peace of mind they’re doing the right thing.

We work with firms who are the focus of regulatory enforcement or scrutiny, as an adviser, and as a ‘skilled person’. We advise start-ups, investors and acquirers on how regulation has an impact on their strategy.  And we are still a trusted adviser when it comes to ongoing compliance advice: many of our clients have been with us for more than 10 years.

We are proud to have remained both highly technical and independent over the years, and have our founder Ben still at the helm. Our timeline below gives more information about our development.
