David Rundle


David Rundle focuses his practice on white collar crime and financial services enforcement. He acts for companies and individuals who face criminal or regulatory investigations. Given his previous work at the Enforcement and Financial Crime Division of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), he is well placed to advise on all aspects of the FCA's enforcement process and powers. Mr. Rundle is dual qualified: he has been called to the Bar of England and Wales and is also admitted to practice in New York.

Mr. Rundle represented a client implicated in the FCA's EURIBOR investigation. He has also represented ex-members of the FSA's senior management, who were interested individuals in the Bank of England's investigation into the collapse of HBOS, and the adequacy of the FSA's enforcement response. He has considerable experience in enforcement cases pursued against approved persons.

In the criminal sphere, he has acted in criminal matters since the outset of his career. Prior to joining the firm, he was an independent barrister predominantly acting in criminal cases for both prosecution and defence. He conducted jury trials in the Crown Court and appeared in appellate matters, both in the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) and the Divisional Court. 

He regularly acts in pro bono matters, typically in appellate criminal matters.
