Financial Services Litigation

Financial services is not a sideline for our lawyers. We have practitioners in every major financial center in the world, working as one coordinated team.  

There is no learning curve when our clients hire us. We understand the industry, the products (including investment banking, asset management, trade finance, and retail) and the law. We get it ― and we will have seen the problem, or something like it, before.  

We don’t see problems in isolation. We recognize that superficially simple issues can have very wide ramifications – and that disputes that seem to be worth pennies can sometimes be worth billions.

We find solutions that preserve our clients' immediate interests along with their relationships with customers, other industry participants, and regulators.
