About FMLI

FMLI - Richard Parlour - Principal

FMLI has been established to focus on your needs from international financial markets. These are of crucial importance since finance oils the wheels of global commerce.

We do not just act for financial institutions, but also for public sector organisations (central banks, regulators, international organisations). About a quarter of our clientele are other law firms, large and small. We also act for some leading corporates. So why have they chosen FMLI?


  • We will make you money, save you money, and/or save you time
  • We will focus on profit enhancing commercial solutions, rather than isolated legal advice
  • We will use our state-of-the-art proprietary methodologies in risk management, compliance assessment, jurisdiction risk, financial market learning and training, if we can, to give you the best result
  • We will do all we can to develop a long term relationship with you. Long term relationships bring deeper appreciation, greater synergy, better business, cost efficiency
  • When we work with you, we will ensure that no conflict of interest arises
  • We will follow the latest developments to get optimal results
  • We won’t promise what we can’t deliver
  • Your wins are our wins. Let’s celebrate! But we won’t just leave you. We’ll help you in the follow-up process to ensure the highest chances of your win sticking long term
  • We will give you the benefit of our global network of like minded professionals in over 140 of the world’s jurisdictions, including every leading financial centre, if you need it
  • We will give you the benefit of thirty years’ experience in financial markets, aiming at wisdom, not just advice
  • We guarantee you maximum value for money (using our wishlist approach)
  • When people need legal advice it is often a stressful time. We will reduce that stress
