Financial services disputes and investigations

The Eversheds Sutherland team is made up of +3,000 lawyers, operating from 69 offices in 34 jurisdictions and is able to mobilise dedicated resources on a scale, and at a speed, which few can match. We act for most of the world’s biggest financial institutions and the unique structure of our team which includes civil, regulatory and criminal lawyers as well as dedicated compliance professionals, means we can provide cross border, sector wide support on a holistic basis.

We have a broad range of expertise in dispute management and regulatory investigations across global banking and markets, commercial and retail banking, life and general insurance, funds and wealth management. We also have deep experience in conduct regulation and financial crime. The team works with Eversheds Sutherland Consulting to provide seamless advice to clients throughout the product and client lifecycle.

Our aim is to put our clients on the front foot with their customer and regulatory relationships, and to help them manage legal and regulatory risk proactively in what remains an extremely challenging business environment. We seek to help clients minimise litigation and regulatory risk wherever possible, whilst deploying an experienced team to fight their corner when problems arise.

A team for global disputes and investigations

We are called upon by our clients to handle high value strategic disputes and to manage their litigation risk. We also manage engagement with regulatory and prosecuting authorities, build compliance programmes and run internal investigations.

Clients choose us for our legal skills and our experience, but they are also drawn to Eversheds Sutherland for its best in class project management, innovation and cost control. We quickly deploy large teams using our global resources, and provide innovative staffing models and accurate budget forecasts for even the most complex mandates.

We are particularly well-known for work in those disputes, investigations and inquiries large enough or of sufficient importance to present systemic or franchise risk. Our recent experience includes global asset tracing on behalf of systemically important insolvent financial institutions; advising on all the major benchmark inquiries; investigating bribery and corruption issues in Africa; carrying out a global OFAC review for a major financial institution and advising on an industry wide review of interest rate swap mis-selling.
