Banking Litigation

We have business knowledge, specialist know-how and extensive experience acquired from acting on a wide range of financial disputes. And our experts provide timely, practical and commercial advice to clients facing conflict.

Notable deals and highlights:

  • We represented the trustee of an Islamic finance transaction in a dispute which was widely reported in the press, 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 of Cambria.  
  • We have acted for Lehman Brothers Finance SA in a number of leading cases concerning the interpretation of the ISDA Master Agreement.
