A decade on, the shockwaves from the financial crisis of 2008 continue to reverberate throughout the global economic and political landscape. While markets have steadied, increased regulatory scrutiny, the impending financial consequences of Brexit and a trend towards political and economic isolationism has led to a climate of uncertainty and given rise to a growing number of disputes in the finance and banking sector. Having the right financial disputes team to support you has never been more important.
