The Financial Services Authority (FSA) has appointed Bowes to lead its prosecution of a group of seven men accused with running a £1m print room spread-bet scam.
Southwark Crown Court has been told that the friends and their relatives obtained confidential takeover documents from high-security printing rooms at two of the City’s biggest investment banks.
