Richard Lissack QC is a member of Fountain Court Chambers, London.
He is currently and has been repeatedly recognised by all the directories and his peers as a leading practitioner across many disciplines and in particular the law of banking and financial services, regulation and compliance, and white-collar crime.
He was called to the Bar in 1978, and became a Queen’s Counsel when aged just 37 in 1994. He is also a QC at the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean, and the Bar of Northern Ireland, and an FLC at the Bar of New York. He most recently became admitted with full rights of audience at the DIFC. He has for over 20 years sat as a judge and as an arbitrator.
His practice is national and international and is currently involved in litigation in London, New York, San Francisco, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, the British Virgin Islands and Switzerland.
His practice comprises mainly high-profile complex litigation and is heavily weighted towards points at which commercial conduct straddles the line between civil, regulatory and criminal law – and in particular cross-border work involving banking and the financial markets.
Richard is co-author of the leading book on the Bribery Act 2010 and also the only post-Lehman review of Financial Services regulation in the UK. Both are published by LexisNexis.
He is also consulting editor to OUP’s Public Inquiries.
