Caroline Hunter-Yeats

Caroline is a specialist financial markets litigator and contentious regulatory lawyer with a particular focus on wealth management firms and complex products sold to high net worth investors. She also regularly advises on the contentious regulatory aspects of the FCA’s product and distributor governance in the retail structured products and asset management sectors.

Caroline has been recognised in the major UK directories for a number of years and she is noted as being “absolutely first rate”, and “sensible, pragmatic, thorough, focused on the detail, and commercial”. She is also noted for “really know[ing] her high-end products and [being] aware of changing market conditions”.

In 2009 Caroline was seconded to the wealth management division of a major bank where she headed up their litigation function. This gave her an in-depth insight into the challenges faced by in house counsel and how external lawyers can best support them.

Caroline is a former member of the firm’s Board and is a current member of the firm’s International Executive Committee. She also led the firm’s eDiscovery function from 2012 – 2017, driving its use of artificial intelligence and the firm’s adoption of a more sophisticated approach to document analysis in litigation and investigations.
