Law firm Bond Dickinson has strengthened its banking and financial services team with the addition of a new partner, who will expand the team’s consumer credit and payment services offerings.

Andrew Barber joins the UK-headquartered firm’s London office in this newly-created role to consult on money laundering regulations, the Bribery Act and financial sanctions, the firm said in a statement.

Barber previously served as a senior associate within law firm Denton’s financial services and funds team. As well as a focus there on consumer credit, he also advised clients on regulatory matter including the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and FCA rulings and developments.

In 2008 he moved in-house with Barclays Wealth after serving as a general banking and finance lawyer in Australia and London for seven years.

“The marketplace for legal consultancy in the financial services industry is extremely fluid.  It is changing rapidly as regulation seeks to keep pace with developments in technology, as financial services institutions expand their product portfolios as the economy picks up and challenger banks bring new competition to the market,” Barber said on his appointment.
