Lawyer giving financial advice

Financial Dispute Resolution Solicitors

Our financial services solicitors advise businesses and individuals on a broad range of financial disputes. Our financial lawyers understand and have worked successfully in this area of the law. We frequently advise financial services organisations and individuals regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). If you need advice on complaints to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) or the Business Banking Resolution Service (BBRS) we are the experts. Perhaps you need advice regarding an investment loan? We also conduct high value and complex claims for negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation. 

We aim to work in a quick and effective way so that you spend your time growing the business rather than on rectifying issues, handling bad publicity and rebuilding reputation. Our advice is always aimed at early resolution of your financial dispute.

Who can our financial services solicitors help?

Our clients come to us from a wide variety of industry sectors such as banks, insurance firms, corporate finance firms as well as small and medium sized enterprises and individuals. Our financial dispute lawyers have worked for some of the World’s largest and most successful financial services institutions. They have also worked for regulators including The Bank of England.

Our broad experience ensures that we are able to deal with a broad range of financial services disputes as effectively as possible. Together with our data protection, regulatory experts and our employment team, our firm offers a valuable resource that appeals to all industry sectors in London, the UK and internationally.
