David leads a number of Bovill’s regulatory consulting practices. He has 15 years of experience gained from industry, government and consulting. This blend of experience enables David to arrive at balanced conclusions when assessing the size and magnitude of compliance related issues.
David builds relationships with clients for the long term, establishing himself and Bovill as the firm clients can rely on when regulatory assistance is required. He takes great pride in treating all clients individually – one size certainly does not fit all – and makes sure solutions and recommendations are bespoke to each client and their unique circumstances.
David leads several client engagements, both on behalf of regulators and in an advisory capacity. David is currently the named Skilled Person in two s166 reviews Bovill are completing on behalf of the FCA, and in recent times he has held leadership roles on behalf of a US Monitor executing the terms of the deferred prosecution agreement. David enjoys working with clients and is keen for his involvement in engagements to be significantly more than ‘top and tail’.
David’s deep subject matter expertise lies within financial crime prevention. He is a former MLRO and honed his investigatory skills at the National Criminal Intelligence Service and the Serious Organised Crime Agency. David was recently engaged as an expert witness in a Permanent Court of Arbitration case that revolved around alleged AML and Sanctions violations.
David holds ICA Graduate Diplomas in AML and Financial Crime Prevention.
