David Rouch


Freshfield Bruckhaus Deringer

David is widely recognised for his technical expertise in financial services law and regulation. He works with the full range of financial market participants on both their advisory and transactional matters – dealing with some of the market’s greatest regulatory challenges.

He is regularly consulted on aspects of the UK and international regulatory reform agenda such as individual accountability, product governance and the interface between conduct and competition regulation and has been assisting various clients with their Brexit planning. He is currently advising the United Nations Environment Programme and others on the integration of sustainability in the investment chain.

He is also known for his work on law and institutional culture, and has helped a number of firms with their culture-change programmes. He has run two joint projects between Freshfields and the London School of Economics exploring this area, and was involved in Bank of England work on the global FX code.

David is a regular commentator and speaker on financial services-related issues and has written for various publications, including the Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation and The Times.

He is the author of The Social Licence for Financial Markets: Reaching For The End and Why It Counts, Palgrave Macmillan, July 2020.
