Global expertise in disputes with banks and financial institutions.

The Banking Litigation Network is a network of law firms from around the world with specialist experience of acting for clients in disputes with banks and other financial institutions.

We founded the network in response to difficulties found in many countries, by clients wanting to appoint a law firm experienced in banking litigation that was willing to act in disputes with banks and other financial institutions. A very large number of law firms are unwilling to do so because of conflict-of-interest.

The main objective of the network is to provide members ready access to a law firm in another country, that the member might wish to appoint for assistance on a client’s behalf.  Each member firm has extensive experience of handling claims against banks and other financial institutions, but the network is non-exclusive and there is no obligation to refer cases to each other.

Member firms are able to exchange information and best practice of interest to other members – examples are claims against banks relating to interest rate swaps and also the manipulation of LIBOR, EURIBOR and FOREX benchmarks. The full membership meets annually for a conference, hosted in a different member country each year.

Current member countries:

Australia; Austria; Belgium; British Virgin Islands; Cayman Islands; Denmark; England; France; Germany; Gibraltar; Guernsey, Channel Islands; Hong Kong; Ireland; Israel; Italy; Jersey, Channel Islands; Luxembourg; Malta; Netherlands; Northern Ireland; Poland; Portugal; Russia; Scotland; Singapore; Spain; Switzerland; USA.

The common language of the network is English but in many of the member firms, many other languages are, of course, also spoken.
