Banking and financial services litigation

  • The team at Gresham Legal has substantial experience of acting for major international financial institutions and a large majority of our work has involved retail and investment banks, or their financial products.
  • We also act against major banks and other financial institutions. Our business model means that we are not typically bound by commercial or professional conflicts of interest, which can prevent larger firms from acting.
  • We focus on complex and high value banking disputes, spanning multiple jurisdictions, but retain the flexibility to act on the full range of disputes for both corporate and individual clients at the domestic level.


  • Acting for a former shareholder and director of a Russian retail bank in proceedings before the Commercial Court in which the bank claims damages of over US$1 billion.

  • Acting on several claims for compensation for corporate clients against banks and other financial institutions arising from the loss of monies through cyber fraud.

  • Acting for the subsidiary of a FTSE 100 company in relation to a £100m mis-selling claim brought by the liquidators of an unregulated collective investment scheme and related satellite disputes brought by IFAs.
