Jonathan Brogden is a partner in the firm's Dispute Resolution Group specialising in banking and finance disputes, Financial Services regulatory investigations and enforcement, and financial crime.
Jonathan acts for financial institutions and sophisticated investors in relation to disputes concerning complex financial instruments, derivatives, wealth management, structured investments, corporate loan defaults, enforcement of security and recovery actions. Much of his work in this area has an international dimension; either acting for non-UK banks and other financial institutions in litigation in the English High Court and arbitration or pursuing claims in Foreign Courts, including tracing exercises and enforcement action.
Jonathan has a depth of experience in handling Financial Services regulatory investigations and enforcements and represents regulated entities and individuals faced with action taken by the FCA and PRA. He has acted for clients involved in investigations concerning LIBOR, EURIBOR and FOREX manipulation, market abuse (including criminal investigations and prosecutions) international sanctions and a variety of breaches of COBs. Jonathan frequently works in a co-counsel role with foreign lawyers representing client's interests across multiple jurisdictions. He has particular experience in relation to investigations and action taken by the US Department of Justice and CFTC, as well as with European-based regulators.
Jonathan also defends corporates and individuals subjected to investigation and prosecution by the criminal authorities. This has included, by way of example, the high profile fraud/conspiracy charges pursued by the SFO in relation to LIBOR and EURIBOR, bribery and corruption, international sanctions, money laundering, fraud by false representation, immigration act offences, perverting the course of justice and fire arms offences.
Jonathan is a committee member of the Fraud Lawyers Association, and a member of the Financial Services Lawyers Association, the European Criminal Bar Association, and the London Solicitors Litigation Association.
