The Finance and Banking Disputes team is recognised in the market for its top flight financial and regulatory disputes practice. Our lawyers have a deep knowledge of the financial services sector, complex financial products and documentation and financial regulations. For all businesses in the financial services sector, individuals and corporates with disputes involving financial products and documents, and individuals and corporates engaged with overseas or domestic financial services regulatory bodies, the team has the relevant legal and industry expertise to provide strategic advice and achieve our clients' objectives.
We are known for our low levels of conflict. We act for all sides of the industry, from banks and other financial institutions, to corporate borrowers and investors. We are able to draw on the expertise of specialists across banking and debt finance, investment funds, asset management, trade finance, private equity, fintech and regulation.
Our matters are often high value and multi-jurisdictional. We view litigation as one part of the overall strategy we devise for clients to achieve their commercial objectives and offer clients a significant return on investment. The team has the capability to support that strategy through coordinated cross-border action, injunctive and other urgent relief, freezing orders and worldwide tracing actions. Our particular strength is in the swift resolution of highly sensitive disputes.
When we litigate, we fiercely defend our clients' interests and pride ourselves on our record of success. Our lawyers are not merely external advisers to our clients, but form a core part of their business, proactively working with them to analyse risks, protect assets, resolve disputes and therefore build their businesses.
