The members of our Banking and Financial Services team belong to the leading chambers in the Midlands for such work. The team is increasingly expanding its reach to service high quality work in London and overseas. An increasing amount of the work involves cross-territory disputes. 

We recognise that clients demand specialist knowledge from barristers who are technically astute, excellent in court, aware of wider commercial issues and personable.  This is backed with a professional clerking team that is wholly client-focused and responsive.

Each member of our team has significant experience of banking and financial services work and such expertise spans all aspects of contested and advisory claims. Particular areas of expertise include:

  • Banking and FSA supervision, investigation and enforcement
  • Banking litigation 
  • Guarantees 
  • Mortgages and charges 
  • Securitisation 
  • Capital market arrangements 
  • Bonds 
  • Derivatives 
  • Factoring 
  • Finance leasing 
  • Pensions

They also regularly provide advice in relation to financing and banking transactions and documentation. Some members of the team also accept appointments as arbitrators or mediators in these fields. The team has specialist knowledge and expertise in advising as to financial products mis-selling claims, including claims arising out of the swaps and Libor scandal, acting both for and against claimants.

There are numerous reported cases involving members of the team, details of which can be viewed on each member’s CV. Members of the team contribute articles to specialist Banking and Financial Services publications. They also regularly provide local and national seminars to solicitors and financial advisers.

We recognise that funding can sometimes be an issue and in appropriate cases, members of the team are prepared to consider acting on a conditional fee basis. We will always try to provide a clear response to funding issues as quickly as possible.
