About Christopher Collins

Christopher Collins works with financial services clients on regulatory and compliance matters. He represents European and non-European clients including proprietary trading firms, investment managers, hedge funds, broker-dealers, trading venues and clearinghouses. Previously, Chris worked in the legal and compliance department of a global asset manager. He dealt with the day-to-day issues faced by firms that depend on the financial markets to drive their business. This means he is uniquely qualified to advise international firms about any cross-border issues they may have.

Firsthand industry experience helps provide first-rate legal solutions

Many of Chris's clients are international companies and therefore require an understanding of the cross-border issues and opportunities that may arise for their businesses. In some cases they're entering new markets; in others, planning for future regulatory reform. Chris helps these clients navigate the panoply of European and UK regulations affecting them as they pursue their business aims. He offers them considered recommendations, presenting them with their best options when dealing with the rules affecting trading in financial instruments.

Chris joined Katten Muchin Rosenman UK LLP as a trainee in 2016 and qualified as a solicitor in 2017.

Before that, he worked for three and a half years in the legal and compliance department of AllianceBernstein. He also volunteered at the Citizens Advice Bureau, a charity providing face-to-face advice and information to the public.
