Banking and Finance

Kings Chambers has a strong and growing reputation as a leading set for banking and financial services litigation matters. Our barristers are recognised in the directories as leading practitioners.

 

Areas of Banking and Finance Law we cover

The work is undertaken by our specialist barristers primarily falls into the following categories:

    1. Advising and representing banks and other secured lenders in relation to the enforcing of guarantee debts where the contention include sales at undervalue, misrepresentation and negligence/breach of contract.
    2. Advising and representing companies/customers in relation to negligent advice/misrepresentation and mis-selling claims and tax mitigation schemes. We have continued to see a significant increase in this area primarily acting for high net worth claimants in actions against banks, accountants, wealth management companies etc. 
    3. Claims against banks with allegations of wrongful withdrawal of facilities (GRG claims), misappropriation and falsification, for example, a significant case where a former chief executive of a leading overseas bank with allegations of misappropriation, fabricated loan book and share price manipulation through the creation of fictitious loans and banking transactions.

We frequently receive instructions in multi-million-pound domestic disputes but also international disputes in the British Virgin Islands and the Channel Islands.
