About us

The firm’s principal purpose is to provide a source of independent legal advice across and diverse structured investment products targeted at institutional investors. 

 

One of the main problems for investors, as far as legal complexity and risk are concerned, is that the law firms with relevant expertise very often only make themselves  available to advise the “sell-side” and not the investor.

What we do

The twin principal services we offer are:

​ 

  • Transaction documentation for complex structured transactions (such as CDOs, derivatives etc)

  • Disputes arising from investments in complex structured transactions; and advice in connection with any restructuring proposals in respect of their investments

Experience

In recent times the firm has acted for institutional investors in relation to:

 

  • The development of fraudulent misselling claims in the English courts.  These arise out of the admissions made in recent years to the US Department of Justice by various global banking groups in connection with the "the packaging, securitization, issuance, marketing and sale of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS)" in the years leading up to the Global Financial Crisis

  • Disputes between institutional borrowers and secured lenders; and between derivatives counterparties, arising out the fire sale collateral assets in the wake of market turmoil in the Spring of 2020.
