Financial litigation roundup - Summer 2018 edition

Published on 20 July 2018

Welcome to the latest edition of our financial litigation roundup. In this edition, we consider recent judgments and ongoing cases from the banking and financial world in the UK and Hong Kong, as well as legal developments across those jurisdictions.

RPC continues to build on its status as one of the few premier tier banking and finance litigation specialists which is able to assist market counter parties of all descriptions in disputes against the largest banking institutions due to our predominantly conflict free position. The practice goes from strength to strength and has earned the recognition of Chambers and Legal 500 as being in the highest bracket of conflict free firms operating in the financial markets disputes sector, together with many well-deserved individual rankings and reviews for our partners.

In May 2018, Simon Hart took up the role of Head of Financial Disputes, with Tom Hibbert continuing in his role as Global Head of Commercial Disputes and a senior partner in our Financial Disputes team
