Brian Spiro moved from BCL to Herbert Smith Free hills in the summer of 2017. ‘During the last year, much of my time has been spent representing individuals working in the financial sector who have been caught up in the Libor, Euribor and Forex benchmark rigging scandals,’ says Spiro, whom clients describe as ‘unflappable’. He has recently orchestrated the successful conclusion of a dispute between HMRC and a former bank executive subject to an investigation lasting more than five years into allegations of cheating the revenue. He also recently acted for HNWs in dispute with the tax authorities, and represented a prominent trader under FCA investigation for alleged market manipulation and insider trading.
