Daniel Langley, Solicitor, Public and Regulatory
I am a solicitor in the Regulatory Group at Fieldfisher. I practise in all areas of public and regulatory law including judicial review, statutory interpretation, inquests and inquiries, and regulatory investigations/professional disciplinary matters.
I have assisted public bodies successfully defend challenges to their legislation, enabling them to pursue key statutory and strategic objectives without needing to seek new legislation from the Secretary of State. I have experience in regulatory investigations and prosecutions, assisting the UK's regulator for premium rate phone services in preparing and bringing cases to Tribunal for serious breaches of its code of practice. I am currently working on the inquests into the deaths of 21 people in the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings. Other recent clients include the Construction Industry Training Board, the phone-Paid Services Authority and a number of Police and Crime Commissioners.
During my training contract I spent time on secondment at Bank of America Merrill Lynch advising their prime brokerage team on compliance with new FCA requirements.
I am a member of the Association of Regulatory and Disciplinary Lawyers (ARDL) and write regularly for the Public and Regulatory Group blog.
I speak conversational French and Italian, and as a former captain of Fieldfisher's football team still come out of retirement for the occasional appearance. I enjoy cycling and running and completed my first marathon this year.
