Our team of banking litigation lawyers has a considerable track record of determinedly resisting claims made by banks and other financial institutions and encouraging them to look for ways to resolve the dispute by compromise.
We work frequently with clients in high value and complex banking litigation and financial disputes including over benchmark manipulation, investments, structured finance, forex, loans, guarantees and other forms of security and we have particular experience of disputes relating to derivatives. Our clients include UK and offshore commercial entities (often from the property industry), financial institutions, hedge funds, finance industry professionals and high net worth investors, with a frequent international element.
Distinctively, we are one of very few London ‘conflict-of-interest-free’ law firms willing and able to deal with the most complex claims against the major banks and financial institutions. Our banking lawyers have acted for many clients referred to us by major English, US and other overseas law firms which are themselves conflicted in acting against banks.
We provide frequent estimates of costs and, in appropriate cases, we offer fixed and capped fees for stages of the dispute and a no-fee review for an initial assessment.
