Partner Elaina Bailes and Associates Aleks Valkov and Tom Otter have written the UK chapter of Lexology’s new Getting the Deal Through Financial Services Litigation guide for 2020.

Lexology introduces the guide by saying:

“Financial Services Litigation charts the growth of litigation in the financial sector worldwide, with our expert authors answering key questions in major jurisdictions. Topics covered include: common causes of action; powers of regulatory authorities; alternative dispute resolution; specialist courts and procedures; disclosure requirements; data governance issues; remedies and enforcement; and changes in the regulatory landscape since the financial crisis.”

The guide covers the key jurisdictions of Australia, Brazil, China, South Africa, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the USA. The Getting the Deal through platform allows users to compare the legal position in the different legal jurisdictions covered.

The UK chapter contains information on the nature of claims, procedure, disclosure and interaction with the regulatory regime, and includes an update and comment on trends.

The UK chapter can be viewed here.
