    The Appeals Panel

    The ADGM Board of Directors established the Appeals Panel in accordance with ADGM Financial Services and Markets Regulations 2015 (FSMR) to provide an independent review of a wide range of administrative decisions made by the FSRA. It also has a first instance decision-making function to consider and determine executive decisions referred to it by the FSRA.

    The Appeals Panel seeks to secure consistent, transparent and proportionate use of regulatory powers and increase regulatory certainty and the expedient resolution of matters. It is comprised of five legal and regulatory professionals with expertise and experience in commercial litigation, international arbitration, banking and finance, commercial dispute resolution and other areas. The Panel is led by Mr Michael Brindle KC as the President, with Ms Jane Diplock AO as Deputy President.

    To preserve its objectivity and impartiality, the Appeals Panel has full independence and authority for determining regulatory appeals and is independent of the ADGM Board of Directors, the FSRA and the ADGM Courts.
