Global Financial Services Regulation > Financial Services Litigation

Our litigation practice in London focuses on complex, high-value English law disputes, typically with an international aspect. We are involved in many of the highest-profile disputes in London, spanning financial institutions, energy, telecommunications, construction, M&A, investment funds and shareholder issues. Our key strengths include distressed debt, financial restructuring, shareholder activism and insolvency litigation; sovereign disputes; disputes involving complex creditor arrangements; complex, multiparty and cross-border disputes; and international asset-recovery. For example, we currently act for Petrobras in its $500 million litigation concerning the P36 production platform, described in The Times newspaper as “the world’s largest oil platform dispute,” and for bondholder creditors on litigation affecting their interests in the three collapsed Icelandic banks, which together comprise the world’s second-largest-ever insolvency. We also regularly work alongside local counsel in handling litigation in other jurisdictions and financial centers around the world.
