Financial Services Regulation
Ortolan Legal Limited is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 but is able in certain circumstances to offer a limited range of investment services to clients because it is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of England and Wales. Ortolan Legal Limited can provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services Ortolan Legal Limited has been engaged to provide.
Because Ortolan Legal Limited is not authorised by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), we are retained only to provide legal and (where applicable) tax advice to our clients. In particular, we do not give advice on the merits of investment transactions, and nothing we say or do should be construed as an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity.
Ortolan Legal Limited is not authorised by the FCA. However, Ortolan Legal Limited is included on the register maintained by the FCA so that we can carry on insurance mediation activity, which is broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts. This part of our business, including arrangements for complaints or redress if something goes wrong, is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The register can be accessed via the FCA website.
