Banks and financial institutions face issues everyday that have the potential for litigation. We can provide strategic advice, aligned with the business, including regulatory, reputation and financial risk views, to help navigate potential litigation.

What we do

Our complex banking and finance litigation team are experts in:

  • AML
  • Complex possession
  • Professional negligence
  • Enforcement of security
  • Financial instruments
  • Fraud
  • Compliance
  • Consumer Claims and allegations of mis-selling
  • Mortgage litigation
  • Unsecured debt recovery including CCA advice
  • Lender liability claims.

With a strong commercial understanding of the banking and property sectors, our lawyers work closely with other specialist teams including insolvency, real estate, unsecured debt recovery and commercial litigation to provide financial institutions with a clear and cost-effective solution.

We recognise that no two cases are alike and will provide advice based on the anticipated costs of taking action, the financial strength of opponents, the desire to protect the value of the brand and the likelihood of success.
