Banking and finance

Overview

The team advises on a variety of financial and regulatory disputes. These relate to numerous issues including loan agreements, letters of credit, guarantees, credit default swaps, interest rate swaps, repo agreements and various forms of collateralised debt obligations including mortgage-backed securities. We have particular expertise in claims against banks relating to the mis-selling of complex financial products, as well as LIBOR- and FOREX- related claims.

Our team’s experience includes:

  • MHB Bank AG v Shanpark Limited and MHB Bank AG v Vendart Limited and Structadene Limited [2015] - acting for the defendants in respect of a summary judgment application brought against it for early termination payments due under an ISDA Master Agreement.
  • Lakatamia Shipping Co Ltd v Nobu Su et al [2014] - acting for the defendants in respect of a US$50m claim concerning Forward Freight Agreements and the defendants’ failure to buy back the derivatives on the agreed date.
  • Lehman Brothers International (Europe) (in administration) v CRC Credit Fund Ltd & Others [2009] - acting for one of the investment funds appointed as a representative respondent for the segregated money claimants following the collapse of Lehman Brothers. The amount claimed by the fund was in excess of £15 million.
  • Advising a number of investment funds seeking to recover monies held by MF Global following its administration. This matter involved advising on the new Special Administration Regulations, introduced by the government to deal with investment banks which enter into administration.
