Allen & Overy’s German dispute resolution team has extensive experience in the area of banking and finance disputes (both in the retail and investment banking sector as well as in interbank relationships).

We focus on disputes arising in the areas of investment consulting and brokerage, prospectus liability and asset management, as well as disputes in the area of lending and credit security law or legal questions in connection with insolvency law/restructuring. These cases are conducted, where required, in collaboration with one of the leading banking and finance teams (worldwide and in Germany).

A significant portion of the proceedings we handle concern cross-border matters; in this respect, we benefit from close collaboration with the banking/litigation practice teams in many other jurisdictions.
