Banking & Finance

We provide comprehensive advice and representation in banking and financial disputes. We have particular experience in dealing with civil law and capital market disputes in cross-border proceedings.

We have many years of experience in advising and representing banks and financial institutions in disputes involving all areas of general civil and capital markets law. One of the main focuses of our work in this area concerns disputes related to alleged misselling. We have also consistently represented clients in connection with claims arising under guarantees or other forms of security as well as in pursuing and securing claims in connection with insider trading. Furthermore, we are familiar with the enforcement of claims for damages relating to insufficient risk and credit assessment.

We also have particular expertise in disputes involving alleged misleading advice concerning various financial products, such as fund products, asset-backed securities and swap transactions. A significant proportion of the cases we handle also concern claims for damages in connection with the sale of company shares, as well as prospectus liability claims.

A unique strength of our team when dealing with cross-border disputes in the banking and finance sector lies in resolving procedural complexities that typically arise in such a context. Our lawyers are intimately acquainted with issues of international private and civil procedural law, such as the validity of agreements concerning choice of law and choice of dispute forum, international service of process and legal assistance, as well as the enforceability of court judgments.
