After completing his undergraduate degree, Colin pursued a career in the financial compliance sector. He gained valuable experience in financial crimes investigations. His work involved anti-money laundering and investigations in fraud, tax evasion and avoidance. His work involved conducting meticulous analysis of complex commercial structures involving politically exposed personnel, trusts and significant cross-border coverage across a range of jurisdictions in APAC, Central Asia, Europe, the UK and USA. Collaborating closely with financial regulators further intrigued his interest in the legal profession.
Throughout his career, Colin has developed exceptional skills in maintaining client relationships from frequently working with high-net-worth individuals and C-Suite Executives.
