Offering the full range of dispute resolution and contentious regulatory services

We combine our leading dispute resolution and contentious regulatory experience with the regulatory, business, and transaction expertise of our global finance practice. This combination provides the foundation for the effective strategies we regularly develop for clients in enforcing rights, recovering money or assets, defending claims or assisting with internal or regulatory investigations.

Litigation experts

We are experts in avoiding and resolving disputes in the banking and finance sector, acting for the world's leading investment banks and funds. Our high-profile cases involve complex issues relating to all aspects of the financial services industry, including derivatives, swaps and securitisation transactions, in addition to claims of fraud and mis-selling and (in jurisdictions where applicable) class actions.

Trusted advisers on global and financial regulatory investigations

We advise our clients on all regulatory matters and how they should respond to and investigate them; including in relation to financial crime, regulatory enforcement, systems and controls, complaints handling, misconduct and structured products. Our depth of understanding of financial regulators and regulations allows us to provide incisive advice to our clients in order to react and respond to regulatory investigations and proceedings in the most impactful way.

Our experience includes advising:

  • ANZ on the successful defence of the exception fees class action brought on behalf of customers to recover a range of fees charged by ANZ on consumer and business transaction accounts and credit cards. The cases involved allegations of penalty, unconscionability and unfair contract terms;
  • Cattles and Welcome Financial Services on a £1.6bn claim for audit negligence, one of the largest ever cases in the UK High Court;
  • Credit Suisse in the defence of mis-selling claim by an investor against the bank in relation to accumulator transactions;
  • A leading US bank in investigations in London, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney into alleged manipulations of foreign exchange markets, including advising extensively on remedial measures implemented as a result of the investigations; and
  • A syndicate of seven banks in relation to global proceedings in Singapore, India and Dubai following alleged fraudulent activity/conspiracy and a repayment default under English law governed trade finance arrangements.
They are technically very sound and really excellent in co-ordinating international litigation. They are very dedicated to the cause. The level of client care is phenomenal. CHAMBERS, 2016
