Finance Disputes lawyers

Disputes involving financial institutions can be complex and involve vast sums. This is where our experience gained through long-standing relationships with major banks and financial institutions can deliver efficient and effective solutions for your business.

We understand that in the current climate financial institutions must be increasingly internally-focused, and we have extensive experience conducting large-scale investigations and reviews into conduct and practice in the run up to - and after - the financial crisis. We have experience in investigations by regulators and mis-selling litigation, as well as expertise in complex financial disputes and enforcement actions.

We are finance litigation specialists linking in with almost 600 litigators across our firm. This means we are able call upon extensive and sophisticated resources – from project and document management to dedicated paralegal support – to tailor our service to your individual needs. We divide our approach between London, Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow depending on our clients’ interests.

We regularly act for insolvency practitioners and financial institutions and pride ourselves on understanding and working alongside our clients to achieve results.
