Banking and Lending
This is a specialist area in which we have worked for almost two decades. Clients operate in a challenging environment where negligence, fraud, and criminal activity are unwanted but often prominent factors.
In addition to financial mis-selling, interest misrepresentations/miscalculations, forgery, data retrieval and business restructuring issues, there is a developing line of Judgments where the Courts have criticised prominent banks for turning a Nelsonian blind eye to information which should have been identified as highly irregular and reckless to ignore.
The linking of dishonesty to lending behaviour is growing and coming under greater focus in the media following recent high profile criminal trials. The list of victims of fraud can include both lender and customer with losses that, more often than not, are at the multi-million pound level.
We have advised (in unrelated transactions) both banks and customers on serious fraud and instances of dishonest assistance. We have strong relationships with professional investigators which excel in analysing criminal evidence and analysing financial issues. Fraud and insurance fight one another.
Within the services we provide are our skills relating to:
- Financial mis-selling
