Financial Services Litigation

Banking and financial services disputes are fought in a sophisticated commercial and regulatory environment.

Overview

Our lawyers have both the legal expertise and industry knowledge to provide smart, focused and pragmatic advice, while protecting your long-term legal interests. We have a proven track-record of acting for claimants and defendants in disputes involving banks, brokers, fund managers and other financial services entities. 

Our banking and financial services disputes lawyers regularly partner with our finance, financial services and markets and corporate recovery departments, each of which are leaders in their fields. This means that you can rely on having the right skillsets and expertise at your disposal, no matter how technically demanding your case.

Our instructions often involve banks being sued for negligence. But they also include technical disputes relating to share or money transfers, breaches of mandate, the operation of the CHAPS system, cheques and other instruments. Fraudulent activity is often a factor in this diverse caseload. 

Our practice is truly international, and a significant proportion of our cases in this area have a cross-border element to them. Our international banking and financial services litigation experience includes Iceland, the British Virgin Islands, Guernsey, Italy, the US, Canada and Japan. We work with the best overseas disputes practices to fight your cause in any jurisdiction.

Our lawyers are committed and fearless.  Alongside their first-class legal skills, they offer straightforward thinking and commercial advice to get you the best result.
