Ewan Brown - Slaughter and May

Within: Banking litigation: investment and retail

Slaughter and May's 'excellent all-rounders' act for a broad spectrum of clients in the financial sector, including investment banks, major building societies, accountants, hedge funds, actuaries and private equity firms, and the practice stands out for  high-value, technically-demanding, multi-jurisdictional disputes. In one of the largest and most significant global investigations undertaken by regulators since the financial crisis, the team acted for JPMorgan Chase & Co in regulatory and governmental investigations (and related civil claims) into foreign exchange trading at a number of banks. Sarah Lee is dispute resolution group head, Deborah Finkler has led on many of the firm's investigative and enforcement actions, and Jonathan Clark's practice includes advising on litigation involving complex derivatives transactions, benchmark manipulation and regulatory investigations. Also highly regarded are Richard Jeens, Ewan Brown and recently promoted partner Camilla Sanger. At associate level, Peter Wickham is also noted.
