  Mona Vaswani



Mona Vaswani is co-head of the firm’s UK Banking, Finance and Regulatory Litigation practice and head of the Fraud Practice.

Mona advises on a variety of complex, cross-border, disputes, with an emphasis on banking litigation, fraud and asset tracing claims as well as trust litigation. She has substantial experience in advising banks and trustees, and in particular offshore trustees, in the conduct of trust litigation in several jurisdictions. Mona has acted in various claims in the High Court, relating to the finance sector, including those involving allegations of fraud, constructive trust and breach of fiduciary duty. She has also acted in international arbitrations concerning derivatives disputes and has experience of conducting internal inquiries and investigations for a number of corporate and banking clients.

Mona has been ranked as a leading banking, fraud and disputes lawyer in the major UK directories for a number of years. The 2016 and 2017 editions of Chambers UK describe Mona as “tactically very astute and has a good grasp of the client’s interests”, “a quick and energetic lawyer”, citing her “fantastic large-scale case management skills” and commenting that “She has this work ethic which is unrivalled, so clients get a fantastic service out of her because she leaves no stone unturned.” The 2018 edition discusses Mona's "calm, sound advice even in high pressure situations" and her ability "to protect the client's best interests and cut through the chaff to get to main body of the case".

In 2017 Who's Who Legal, market leading legal rankings, has recognised Mona as one of the top eight asset recovery lawyers in the UK. Mona is described as "a real star in the space" thanks to her experience, determination and commerciality. In 2018 she has been named as one of the Thought Leaders in Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery in EMEA, branded as “definitely a leading name in the field” who clients “rate very highly” for her excellent work on investigations and asset recovery matters.
