We have the full range of specialist expertise to assess and evaluate every aspect of a commercial dispute, devising legal strategies that deliver results in line with our clients' commercial drivers and objectives.

Our experience includes advising:

  • A U.S.-headquartered bank on litigation in the English High Court arising from its alleged anti-competitive conduct in the foreign exchange markets.
  • BNP Paribas in class action litigation in the Southern District of New York involving claims that some of the biggest banks in the world manipulated the global foreign exchange (FX) market.
