Partner at Dentons, United Kingdom | United Kingdom (UK)

Celyn is a partner in Dentons’ Litigation and Dispute Resolution team in London.

Specialising in regulation, Celyn advises regulated firms on all aspects of contentious regulatory issues, including FCA/PRA enforcement investigations, section 166 skilled person reviews, and internal investigations. He also advises on non-contentious regulatory matters, including senior management and governance issues, thematic reviews, conduct risk controls and the regulatory implications of Brexit.

Having spent seven years at the FSA/FCA, leading some of the regulator’s most high-profile enforcement cases before heading up the Enforcement Policy team, he is able to draw on broad perspectives. Celyn also has particular knowledge of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR), having been a member of the joint PRA/FCA working group on the SMCR and having advised many institutions on their implementation projects since rejoining private practice.

Celyn’s views on regulation and enforcement activities have been quoted in The Times, City AM, Thomson Reuters, and Bloomberg.
