Managing Associate, Simmons & Simmons
Adam specialises in advising clients on complex international, cross-border and sensitive areas of law, with a particular emphasis on financial crime and financial services regulatory matters.
Adam is a managing associate in the Financial Markets practice group based in Dubai. Adam joined us in February 2020 having worked in the region for the preceding three years. He has gained a strong background in the local and regional framework and practicalities that are vital to understanding the international and domestic sensitivities in the Middle East. He provides current and pragmatic advice on the region’s anti-money laundering legislation, boycott provisions, anti-bribery legislation, and sanctions regimes.
Prior to working in the Middle East, he was a barrister in London where his practice entailed both defence and prosecution work, with a special emphasis on financial crime matters, including advisory and representation instructions on the proceeds of crime, money laundering, bribery and extradition. During his work at the self-employed bar, he was also seconded to the Financial Conduct Authority in London, whereby he was able to amass practical experience of complex regulatory investigations.
