Banking & Financial Services

Banking and financial services law is a growing specialism for Quadrant Chambers, and one for which we’re acquiring a considerable reputation in the market.

Members of chambers have acted in banking disputes involving:

  • Loan transactions (including counterparty risk)
  • Surety arrangements (both personal and corporate)
  • Mortgages
  • Equipment, aircraft and ship finance agreements
  • Letters of credit
  • Bills of exchange
  • Performance bonds
  • Letters of comfort
  • Structured financial products (including swaps and derivatives)
  • International debt products and product lines
  • Rating agencies
  • LIBOR and FOREX manipulation

Members of chambers have acted in financial services disputes involving:

  • Misrepresentation and mis-selling claims
  • Regulatory investigations
  • Negligence claims against professionals
  • Claims involving domestic and international financial services regulations, including the FCA rules
  • Claims arising under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000

Both banking and financial services disputes dovetail with other areas where Quadrant has considerable expertise.
