Eleanor Davison is a barrister at Fountain Court Chambers specialising in cross border white collar crime, fraud, corruption and contentious regulatory cases. Consistently recognised as an expert in the fields of financial crime, financial crime (corporates) and financial services, Chambers 2017 describes her as  'very responsive, and clearly an expert in her field’ and ‘very user friendly, very organised, very clever.'  Eleanor’s core practice is defending corporates and individuals in some of the most high profile SFO and DOJ investigations. She is known for her depth of involvement in cases, with Chambers 2017 describing her as  ‘very responsive and not in any way hierarchical … she’s very prepared to help with disclosure and drafting skeleton arguments and more than willing to get her hands dirty’ and ‘a strong team player with superb communication skills who provides high quality input under challenging conditions' During 2016 and into 2017, Eleanor has been leading an investigation for the enforcement division of the Financial Conduct Authority into cross border money laundering at a global financial institution giving her a deep insight into how enforcement conducts financial crime investigations. Eleanor was seconded from the Bar to the legal division of Barclays Bank in 2011 giving her expertise in the competing commercial and regulatory priorities of financial institutions. Eleanor’s practice extends to civil proceedings in the Commercial Court and the Employment Tribunal such that she is ideally placed to advise on the myriad issues that can arise in cross border global investigations.
