Jake Pidcock joins Stephenson Harwood as partner


Law firm Stephenson Harwood LLP has expanded its corporate practice with the arrival of Jake Pidcock, who joins the firm as a partner in London from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

"The need for financial services regulatory expertise has increased dramatically across our corporate practice, particularly with the growth of our funds and private equity practices," said Andrew Edge, head of corporate, Stephenson Harwood. "Jake is a high quality lawyer whose skillset and breadth of experience, especially from his time at the FCA, will make him a valuable asset to our practice and be very important to our clients."

Pidcock brings expertise in relation to AIFMD and UCITS, market regulation and Brexit. His wide technical knowledge, in particular in relation to market abuse and the Prospectus, Listing, Disclosure and Transparency Rules, will further enhance the firm's contentious regulatory practice.

During his fourteen year career at the FCA, key achievements included managing a team which worked alongside HM Treasury and the Bank of England to draft the 2009 Banking Act and establishing the FCA's competition function after the Authority acquired a competition objective in 2013. Recently, Pidcock's focus has turned to Brexit and he has supported HM Treasury in conducting a review of the EU funds legislation.

He returns to Stephenson Harwood having previously worked as an associate in the corporate practice between 1996 and 2000.
