Unlike most City dispute resolution departments, we are a conflict-free firm. We have acted against major UK banks, who are often prepared to throw big resources at their opponents. We are one of a handful of firms with the status and expertise to take on such heavyweight litigation, in a highly cost-effective way.
We also act for banks, primarily in the recovery of substantial bad loans, often rising into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Some claims have been directly against debtors, while others have been against guarantors or individuals alleged to have fraudulently procured the lending. With proceedings often involving asset recovery on a multi-jurisdictional basis, we leverage the wider asset investigation expertise of the team to handle even the most complex cases in house.
