Clyde & Co is almost unique in the City: a leader in litigation that is not conflicted from acting for or against many of the major banking institutions. Our banking litigation practice is a well established group with leading reputation gained long before the recent financial crisis.
The team has well recognised expertise in handling high-value, sophisticated and complex multi-jurisdictional banking disputes. In recent months, we have advised a Russian investment holding company, a US-based global investment bank, a listed Japanese financial institution and the UK trading house of a major French bank. We have also seen a number of disputes arising from the recent credit crunch as both borrowers and lenders rethink their commitments to each other under deals that were agreed in a very different market.
Our client base includes:
- investment banks
- retail banks
- private equity houses, hedge funds and managers
- asset managers, insurers
- other financial services companies
- high net worth individuals and large corporates
We understand that for many financial services clients managing their reputation is crucial. With the speed of modern communication the smallest piece of news can become worldwide knowledge in seconds and cause changes in both business perception and confidence.
