The Banking Litigation Team is a specialist team within Litigation & Dispute Resolution acting for both financial and blue chip institutions in the collection of secured and unsecured commercial debt, and in defending claims.
Having acted for banks and asset finance companies over many years, the Team has extensive knowledge of these industries and their working practices. The Team’s focus on recoveries on the part of lenders means that it is fully conversant with relevant law (e.g. O’Brien, Etridge). The team also works closely, where appropriate, with the firm’s Real Estate, Finance, and Insolvency teams.
The team are committed to providing a competitively priced service, but not at the cost of either quality or client service. A practical and commercial approach is always adopted, and the team has extensive experience of all forms of alternative dispute resolution (including mediations and arbitrations). From time to time there are however disputes which simply cannot be resolved in this manner, and which have to proceed to trial. Our experience as trial lawyers is substantial, and the Team can boast numerous successes in both the High Court and the appellate courts.
The Team were recently awarded the Mortgage Finance Gazette’s ‘Best Law Firm Award’ read more here.
