Banking & Financial Services

The increasing complexity of financial markets and products, a nuanced regulatory framework, and fast-changing conditions beyond the control of individual market participants represent challenges for both investors and service providers, particularly in high stakes financial transactions. In this environment, disputes are sometimes unavoidable. Forcefully representing our clients and their business interests in such disputes forms part of our core expertise as advocates.

Confidentiality in banking and financial transactions is often of particular importance – therefore, arbitration has become a dispute resolution method of choice in this field of law. Disputes in the banking and finance sector require a firm understanding of the relevant market regulations and international practices as well as intimate familiarity with the challenges that market participants face.

While Paragon, with few exceptions, is not handling transactional work in banking and finance, our lawyers have aggregated extensive experience in disputes involving financial instruments and joint ventures, assembling a sizable network of commercial and financial experts dealing with the subject-matter issues at stake. We bring this experience and our contacts to bear for our clients in handling their banking and finance disputes in arbitration as well as in litigation proceedings.
