As one of the few leading London litigation law firms which can sue banks in substantial financial litigation, we have a track record of significant success against banks and the top London and international law firms that advise them. We are free from the conflicts of interest which prevent most top litigation law firms from acting against financial institutions.

Using litigation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) we help clients including hedge funds, PLCs, borrowers and investors to resolve their financial disputes. Much of our practice has an international dimension and we often work in conjunction with leading boutique litigation firms in other jurisdictions such as the United States.

Our specialist team acts at the cutting edge of this field, in claims against banks involving a wide variety of financial instruments, including loan agreements and facilities, letters of credit, guarantees, performance bonds, collection facilities, derivatives, total return swaps, credit default swaps, interest rate swaps and FX derivatives and other leveraged investments, repo agreements and various forms of collateralized debt obligations (CDO), including mortgage-backed securities.

We also have expertise in acting against banks in claims for mistaken payments procured by third party frauds, and in actions where the bank is the fraudulent party. We have particular experience in acting in litigation against RBS, Lloyds, Barclays and other banks, relating to the mis-selling of complex financial products and to LIBOR fixing and manipulation and we have acted on some of the leading cases in this field.

An outstanding conflict-free firm with quality partners who can take on the market-leading firms.
