Roger is a partner in our Commercial and Retail Banking team, with particular experience in payments, consumer credit and mortgage regulation. He works with a broad cross-section of banks (both international and local, established and challenger), specialist lenders and payment service providers and infrastructure providers
Roger works with these clients and with the key industry bodies to help with the development and implementation of new law and regulation. He also advises on the ongoing impact for all aspects of our clients' businesses, such as licensing and prudential requirements, product design, alliances like distribution and outsourcing arrangements, and transfers of portfolios or businesses.
As an example of the breadth of Roger’s practice, he has recently been involved in the largest European payments acquisition, establishment of a new bank, working with the British Bankers Association to influence the development and implementation of the new Payment Accounts Directive, helping clients make changes to prepare for the Mortgage Credit Directive and working on some new business models in the payments sector.
Roger has lived with the issues facing our clients both in-house, leading legal teams within Lloyds TSB and NatWest, and in private practice. He has also supported the industry as a member of the legal panels of the British Bankers Association and the Council of Mortgage Lenders.
