Advising an international financial services marketing company and its CEO in a £2 Billion unlawful conspiracy dispute

Advising an international financial services marketing company and its CEO in a £2 Billion unlawful conspiracy dispute

This dispute involved an LLP issuing arbitration proceedings an ex-LLP member and a connected High Court claim against members of the ex-LLP member’s team and an overseas financial services marketing company that supported the team.

The case requires expert knowledge and analysis of relevant employment law and common law/corporate principles. More importantly, it requires: (a) tactical expertise in dealing with the various issues and applications that arise in the case; and (b) commercial awareness of the ultimate aims of the client and relationships that need to be maintained.

Our work (as well as the usual tasks associated with high value litigation) has included:

  • Advising on whether the company should accept the claim or seek to have it struck our or heard in its country of incorporation.
  • Negotiating the timetable of the claim in relation to the connected arbitration.
  • Reviewing 30,000 documents on a tight timetable for disclosure.
  • Preparing the company’s CEO to appear as a witness in the arbitration.

This case demonstrates our ability to manage high value, demanding High Court litigation. Given the value of the claim, typically an established, full-service firm would be instructed. However, our experience and reputation enables us to do this type of ‘big ticket’ litigation.
