In the aftermath of the global financial crisis and the more recent accusations regarding LIBOR and foreign currency exchanges, banks and other financial institutions need now, more than ever, to reduce and manage legal, regulatory, financial and reputational risks.

An important part of the risk management exercise is the investigation, identification and monitoring of contentious and regulatory issues across each international centre of operation, partnering with litigation and regulatory counsel attuned to your needs in relevant jurisdictions.

We are experienced in handling large and complex investigations and claims, both domestic and international, and are regularly instructed by some of the largest financial institutions in relation to their most substantial and sensitive disputes. Our big case experience means that we are accustomed to managing large multi-disciplinary teams across international borders, spanning the life cycle of a dispute from investigation, through contentious regulatory proceedings to litigation or arbitration.

Our experience is deep and diverse and includes representing banks and financial institutions in a full range of financial disputes, before courts and tribunals around the globe. We are equally comfortable litigating before the High Courts of England, Frankfurt, Hong Kong or Singapore, the US District Court for the Southern District of New York or the Moscow Arbitrazh Court. We arbitrate before all the major arbitral institutions and were a founding sponsor of the PRIME Finance arbitration and mediation tribunal, established in the Hague specifically to resolve disputes relating to complex financial transactions.
