Outstanding expertise in disputes relating to technical financial services and banking issues.

Financial Services Disputes

We understand the legal, regulatory and commercial issues associated with the ever-evolving financial services industry.

We act for national and international banking and financial services clients in a diverse range of disputes.  Those disputes are often not only significant in value but also highly complex in nature.

Our team, led by Huw Wallis (Head of Disputes & Partner) and Jamie McConnell (Partner), has extensive banking and finance litigation and arbitration experience gained from City and regional law firms in the UK.

We have a strong track record advising on various contentious financial services matters, principally relating to alleged negligence/FSMA claims arising from various investments, with complex international elements.

We also frequently act for clients involved in a wide range of commercial disputes – including professional negligence claims through to allegations of fraudulent misrepresentation and deceit –  that have arisen in the financial services sector.
