financial services litigation


Our financial services litigation practice brings a wealth of experience, dedication and creativity to the representation of our clients, and to the protection and advancement of their interests. We are an expanding domestic and cross-border contentious financial services practice, with significant experience advancing and defending complex claims on behalf of our commercial, corporate and professional services clients, covering all contentious financial services work.

Our domestic and international work for both local and offshore clients includes the prosecution and defence of claims, provision of regulatory advice, and coordination and management of offshore counsel in the context of often complex and competing factual, legal, legislative, political and strategic frameworks. While often large-scale, this work also comprises representation in matters of more modest size, the issues and importance to our clients of equal weight.

Our flexible and responsive approach to client management means that we solve our client’s problems and meet their needs with empathy, understanding, and above all else, efficiency.
