David established Legal Alternative to provide financial services advice to clients operating in the alternative investment sector. With almost 20 years’ experience advising in the financial services sector, he offers clients practical advice on the impact of regulations on their businesses. He advises clients on all aspects of the UK and European financial services regulatory regime, including marketing and promotion, conduct of business, market conduct, market abuse, financial crime and prudential matters. His clients are primarily based in the P2P/crowdfunding, asset management, corporate finance and investment dealing sectors.

David passed the Investment Management Certificate in 2002, was seconded to the London Stock Exchange to help re-write its rulebook in 2006, developed and delivered a diploma programme in structured products for FINRA (the US regulator) and has been involved in a number of legislative lobbying activities. David has been recognised individually in the Legal Directors and has won several legal awards in recognition of his pioneering work in the crowdfunding sector. He is an associate member of the UK Crowdfunding Association.
