FS Legal is described by some as ‘the only pure financial services litigation firm outside London – its team is the envy of many of the top law firms it comes up against’. Gareth Fatchett (‘a renowned expert in financial services work') handles a range of heavyweight financial services litigation; he represented Metro Financial Solutions in a dispute with Tenet Connect Services – the client left the network, and Tenet Connect subsequently attempted to claim back fees. Other work concerns novel regulatory matters, plus SIPP and mortgage mis-selling cases. Paul Crutchley also handles heavyweight work, some of which concerning offshore financial services.
