Disputes in financial services can be complex, costly and protracted – and they often have broader regulatory implications too.
We understand the challenges of a financial services dispute and ensure that often complex financial disputes can be effectively managed to protect our clients’ reputations, limit costs exposure and achieve commercial outcomes in a broader regulatory context.
What do we do?
We fully recognise that a contentious issue for a financial institution must be considered alongside wider regulatory implications, so we ensure litigation and regulatory risk are proactively managed in a coordinated manner.
We know that any individual issue – from operational disputes to security issues and recoveries – can have a wider impact on a client’s customer base, products and brand. That’s why we help to manage that risk and seek to deliver a cost effective resolution which protects our clients’ reputations.
Our work in this area complements the work done by our Banking and Restructuring teams, enabling us to deliver a full suite of services to banks and other finance providers.
They know what they're doing and provide a very good service to banks in this area.
Members of our team regularly attend and speak at industry events. We also sit on a number of legal committees of the Finance and Leasing Association and the Consumer Credit Trade Association, and we are an associate member of the Association of Short Term Lenders.
We have a broad client list and are highly respected for our understanding of the unique requirements of our banking and financial services clients, built on long-term and in-depth relationships, including regular secondments of team members to our clients’ in-house teams.
Who do we help?
We help a broad range of banks, including five out of the six largest clearing banks in the UK and the leading challenger banks, building societies, asset finance houses, asset based lenders, leasing companies and other specialist finance providers including short term high cost creditors.
