Financial Services Disputes
Financial services disputes
Many successful businesses employ borrowing or investment strategies to provide the funding required to establish themselves, to develop and grow and to take advantage of new opportunities.
Commercial loan agreement disputes frequently occur between borrower and lender and these can have a serious effect on company finances and potentially the ability of a company to continue to trade effectively.
Disputes also regularly arise relating to the sale or purchase of complex products such as interest rate hedging products and FX forward contracts, which carry significant levels of risk. We advise clients on the most appropriate settlement strategy to deliver a positive commercial outcome.
The value and complexity of pension products and the associated legislation and regulation make it unsurprising that they generate a wide range of disputes at all levels, ranging from small individual cases to those relating to the corporate schemes of multinational companies.
Successful resolution demands specialist expertise in the complex legal and regulatory framework and practical experience of how different types of scheme work.
We advise on settlement strategy throughout a dispute, working with employers, trustees or members to reach a positive resolution.
Although the majority of insurance claims are settled without dispute, there are inevitably occasions when claims are refused or policies are avoided, sometimes with significant financial implications.
