    Strategic appointment of Brett Aubin as Managing Director for Regulatory Response

    Konexo, the unique global alternative legal and compliance services provider, is pleased to announce the appointment of Brett Aubin as a Managing Director. Brett joins Konexo – a division of global legal practice Eversheds Sutherland – from Gordon Dadds Financial Markets LLP.

    He will be responsible for leading and developing Konexo’s regulatory response managed services – focusing on LIBOR instructions and building on Konexo’s experience in large-scale managed services MiFID 2 and GDPR mandates in the financial services sector. Brett will help Konexo challenge an area traditionally dominated by the Big 4 and heavily targeted by the new ALSPs. His appointment is with immediate effect.

    Brett is a highly experienced management consultant and service design lead, with over 18 years’ experience in city institutions. He brings a wealth of valuable commercial knowledge and an impressive skillset to Konexo, with a strong track record of consulting to investment banks and running businesses within various professional services organisations. His areas of specialism include managed services, alternative delivery mechanisms, change management and high priority governance, data, risk and control reviews.

    Managing Director of Konexo, Brett Aubin, comments:

    “I am very pleased to be joining Konexo, which is a really exciting proposition in the growing alternative legal services sector, where there is huge demand born of regulatory requirements such as the LIBOR transition. I look forward to bringing my experience in this area to bear as we evolve and grow our offering to meet the client need in the range of regulatory challenges facing the financial services sector.”

    Graham Richardson, Partner and Head of Konexo, said:

    “We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Brett Aubin as Managing Director for Regulatory Response. Konexo is already growing strongly and with the addition of Brett’s pedigree in this area to augment and supplement our existing strengths, we look forward to continuing to drive this growth further as we build our ability to deliver large managed services contracts.”

    The financial services industry is currently facing a perfect storm of challenges driven by regulatory mandates such as the LIBOR transition, which involves significant project and advisory work on the repapering of LIBOR-linked contracts. Konexo is well-placed to meet this regulatory remediation need through its managed services function, and the addition of Brett will be instrumental in driving this forward. This is a growing market as the 2022 LIBOR transition deadline approaches, and Konexo’s managed legal services offering is ideally suited to support clients with both the advisory and contract management project work entailed. To this end, Brett will work closely with financial services specialist lawyers at Eversheds Sutherland, to provide comprehensive multi-disciplinary support, including both legal and consultancy advice for clients.  

    Konexo launched in May 2019 through the merging of three well-established teams at Eversheds Sutherland – ES Consulting, Corporate Secretarial and Insolvency – into a new division. The appointment of Brett is the first in a number of planned strategic hires in the coming months as Konexo builds on its market-leading credentials.
