SQUARE 4

Square 4 was founded with the vision to support people and businesses to grow and thrive across the evolving spectrum of governance, conduct, financial crime, and operational risk. Our mission is to deliver unparalleled levels of engagement, service, and expertise, assisting organisations across a diverse and dynamic regulatory environment. We differentiate ourselves from traditional outsourced service providers by fostering partnerships with our clients to propel essential regulatory transformations across our primary service areas.

Square 4 harnesses technology and proficiency to craft tailor-made solutions across our four key service lines: Advisory, Resourcing, Recruitment and Learning & Development. Our team boasts extensive expertise drawn from prestigious backgrounds, encompassing experience from leading professional service firms, regulatory bodies, executive positions within financial institutions, and various consultancy providers.

We’re also dedicated to making a positive impact on our people, clients, and communities. Therefore, it was an easy decision for us, bearing a name like Square 4, to allocate 4% of our annual earnings to charitable causes.

WALKER MORRIS

Walker Morris provides market-leading advice to consumer, motor and asset finance providers. We have one of the largest teams of talented and specialist lawyers, with experience of working both in-house and at the regulator, and advising on regulatory sensitive matters. We have experience of advising a wide range of providers: from large household names to smaller players and new entrants into the market. We advise on the full range of issues from authorisation and permissions, to regulatory process, procedures and policies, to consumer documentation (including post-contractual documents) to challenges to the very way in which you operate business (for example, enforceability challenges, documentation, responsible lending, commission structures and business procedures).

Our recent experience includes:

  • providing strategic advice to motor finance providers on commission issues (including advising on their responses to the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Ombudsman Service, their approach to dealing with claims and complaints and potential risks);
  • advising motor finance providers on prospective diesel emission claims (including advising on the basis of claims and the threatened group litigation orders);
  • providing strategic advice to consumer, motor and asset finance providers on remediation plans and making notifications to the FCA because of non-compliance (including advising on projects with potential remediation of over £500m); and
  • advising consumer, motor and asset finance providers on the impact of the implementation of the Consumer Duty (including advising on policies and procedures, and re-drafting documentation to ensure good outcomes).
