Banking Litigation

We have extensive experience of acting on a range of financial disputes for investment banks, other financial institutions and private individuals. Our specialist banking litigation lawyers provide practical and commercial advice to clients on a variety of contentious issues.

Notable deals and highlights:

  • We represented the trustee of an Islamic finance transaction in a dispute concerning the continued legal validity of a Sharia finance transaction. Parallel proceedings in London and the Gulf gave rise to jurisdictional questions about the appropriate forum, procedure and applicable law.
  • We represented a Cayman Islands fund, which lent money to Cambria Africa plc, an AIM-listed company with investments in Zimbabwe. We advised on the preservation and enforcement of its contractual repayment rights, including the commencement of proceedings to obtain disclosure of the location of key assets belonging to Cambria.  
  • We have acted for Lehman Brothers Finance SA in a number of leading cases concerning the interpretation of the ISDA Master Agreement.
