Banking & Financial Services

Many members of Chambers practise in the banking and financial services area, acting both for and against banks and other financial institutions, as well as public bodies concerned in financial services regulation.

They not only have the high level of legal knowledge and advocacy skills required, but also the requisite sector-specific experience and expertise. The multi-specialist nature of our members also allows Maitland to be the perfect choice for clients who have cases with elements concerning other specialisms, such as company, partnership, insolvency, real estate or fraud. This gives Maitland the edge over some of its more narrowly-focused rivals.

Members of Chambers have been involved in some of the most significant and noteworthy banking and financial services disputes over the last few years, including: Red Kite v Barclays, State of Qatar v Banque Havilland, Tillman v Lloyds Bank & Better Capital LLP, FundingSecure v Green, Tesco, Lehman Brothers and Carillion.

Among the issues on which members have advised and acted as advocates in these and other cases are:

  • Financial regulation
  • LIBOR manipulation
  • Market manipulation
  • Mis-selling, including PPI and derivatives mis-selling
  • Secured lending
  • Funds disputes

Members of Chambers are also editors of some of the leading practitioner text books relevant to this area of the law, including Lender Claims, Civil Fraud and Snell’s Equity (all published by Sweet & Maxwell).
