Financial services

Outer Temple Chambers has a team of barristers who specialise in banking and financial services with an emphasis on commercial litigation and arbitration, civil fraud and regulatory matters involving the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and other regulators.

We have experience of acting for and against banks and other regulated firms, as well as investors, in commercial litigation in the High Court (Chancery Division and Commercial Court) and in arbitration. When advising parties involved in investor litigation (both institutional and retail) we are able to draw upon our expertise in professional negligence and regulatory matters. Barristers have acted for and advised banks, hedge funds, investment firms, insurers, and IFAs, and investors, in important recent litigation including cases considering the meaning of a collective investment scheme for the purposes of s.235 FSMA and issues arising from the alleged mis-selling of complex and structured products to pension schemes, other institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals (for example, the alleged mis-selling of KeyData RMBS wrapper products, the AIG EVRF and CDS/CDO products).

We also regularly advise on and appear in High Court applications, including injunctions, Norwich Pharmacol and search orders.
