Our experience and cases of note

A track record of fearlessness, from headline litigation to specialist dispute resolution and arbitration.

Since our foundation in 2009, our work has included a wide range of notable cases, including some of the most high-profile litigation against major banks in the last decade. We’ve also worked on ground-breaking cases in a wide variety of other areas, including civil fraud, competition disputes, contentious insolvency and financial services regulation.
