Scott Moncur. Financial Service Lawyer

Scott Moncur

Senior Legal Director, Head of Financial Services and Sustainability

I am a commercially focused lawyer who has worked with a full range of businesses across many industries, from startups through to FTSE 100 companies, as both in-house counsel and as consultant lawyer. I have run my own business and continue to be actively involved in non-executive directorship work.

I am about using the law for business success, good governance, good decisions, and customer satisfaction leading to sustainable growth. My core business focus is digital and other disruptive businesses, mainly in the financial services sector. My experience includes regulatory compliance, dispute resolution, legal risk, contract and commercial law, funding, supplier management (outsourcing, insourcing), financial services, pension services, investment, and other platforms, fintech, and all the other techs, community, and society.

I like to cut to the core of any issue, providing information, advice, and effective legal service solutions to product and service providers in various highly regulated environments. And to do so in a straight forward, risk-focused, and timely manner.
