What we do

What we do

The Business List contains three separate sub-lists:

  • business
  • financial services
  • regulatory and pensions business.


We deal with a wide range business disputes, often with an international dimension. Frequently these concern a business structure (company, LLP, LP, partnership etc) including:

  • claims against directors for breach of fiduciary duty (the responsibility to take care of other people’s money)
  • disputes about contractual arrangements between investors, such as share purchase agreements
  • claims in tort, such as conspiracy or fraud, claims for professional negligence (e.g. against solicitors, accountants, surveyors, valuers)
  • claims for breach of contract, specific performance, rectification and injunctive relief as well as other equitable remedies.

Financial Services and Regulatory:

  • Financial claims where the Financial Conduct Authority is a party
  • Claims under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000
  • Claims involving regulators (other than the Pensions Regulator)


  • Covers all claims where pensions are the subject matter of the dispute.
