Banking and Finance Disputes

What we do

We handle a range of disputes both for and against banks and financial institutions. We have the distinct advantage for a large City firm of being largely free from conflicts in the financial sector. We are regularly involved in financial sector disputes which have an international dimension, whether litigating in London on behalf of international clients, or acting for UK and non-UK based clients in extra-jurisdictional and multi-jurisdictional disputes.

What we are known for

We provide partner led teams, which work closely with our clients to provide strategic advice aimed at the early resolution of disputes. Where an early settlement cannot be achieved, we provide a clear and focused plan for the resolution of the dispute through litigation or arbitration involving consideration of any regulatory or disciplinary aspects. We are attuned to the reputational risk associated with high profile disputes in the financial sector, and plan our dispute resolution strategies with this at the forefront.

Detailed elements of our services

We represent clients on a wide range of issues, including the following areas:

  • Disputes in relation to structured products and other derivative transactions;
  • Investment disputes;
  • Private banking disputes;
  • Investigations, regulatory and FSMA enforcement;
  • Complex financial frauds and asset tracing;
  • Loan defaults and enforcement of security;
  • Mis-selling claims;
  • Requests for information, Norwich Pharmacal requests;
  • Freezing and recovery of assets.
