Our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team has a wealth of experience in Banking and Financial Litigation, having acted for hundreds of businesses in claims against banks, for individuals seeking compensation for mis-sold financial investments, in pension transfers and inappropriate tax schemes.
If you are in dispute with your bank or other financial institution, our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team can quickly assess the merits of bringing any claim. There is often a huge disparity in power between the financial institution and our clients, and we specialise in balancing that inequality to ensure that both parties approach the dispute on equal terms.
Our Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team will work with you to consider the options available. We have specialist knowledge in banking contracts, advisory and information duty claims as well as misrepresentation and claims seeking equitable remedies. From the outset and throughout your case, our team will develop a strategy around your objectives, and with a clear understanding of your business and your commercial objectives.
We are different from most law firms in that we do not seek huge amounts of money on account before considering whether to act, but will agree a tailored stepped approach and if appropriate share the risks of litigation through deferred fee agreements. We can assist in exploring options to fund your claim. We have relationships with a number of brokers and providers in the market, to offer a range of solutions to your funding requirements and the size of the dispute.
Our team has considerable trial experience, and will advise you on the processes involved in court proceedings, should litigation become unavoidable. We have considerable expertise in resolving Banking and Financial disputes through mediation and negotiation.
BLM’s Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution team is based in our Manchester office. The team is comprised of three partners, assisted by a team of senior associates, associates and junior fee earners. Your case will be led by a partner, with the expertise and support of other lawyers to ensure work is carried out as economically as practicable.
