Banking & Finance

“South Square has a strong presence in all aspects of banking and finance and is uniquely positioned to deal with credit crunch litigation and advisory work.” Chambers & Partners

South Square undertakes work across the breadth of the banking and finance sector. Our members specialise in large-scale financial disputes, derivatives, securitisations and structured finance products. We are also particularly well placed to handle credit crunch litigation and advisory work due to our insolvency and restructuring expertise.

In addition to consulting banks, hedge funds and private equity groups, our barristers regularly advise public bodies such as the Bank of England, the FCA and HM Treasury.

Recent high profile banking cases in which members of Chambers have appeared include Graiseley v Barclays Bank (LIBOR, alleged mis-selling), Harbinger Capital v Caldwell (compensation for former Northern Rock shareholders), Lehman Brothers International (Europe) (client money), Lomas v JFB Firth Rixson (default provisions in the ISDA Master Agreement), Saltri III v MD Mezzanine Sicar (challenge to enforcement sale by security trustee), Raiffeisen Zentralbank v Royal Bank of Scotland (misrepresentation), and OFT v Abbey National (bank charges).
