Fladgate LLP's 'excellent firm is frequently involved in major litigation'. The practice specialises in acting in complex, high-value disputes, which are internationally focused or sourced; and being largely conflict free, the department is able to sue most banks and act in financial services litigation. It acted for Castex Technologies in proceedings in the Commercial Court, brought by various hedge funds, which alleged rigging of stock prices in connection with the conversion of foreign currency convertible bonds. Simon Ekins is department head; the 'switched-on and easy-to-work-with' Steven Mash is 'at home across the range of commercial disputes'; and Bree Taylor is 'professional and shows broad-based thinking'. Mark Buckley, Alexander Wildschßtz and Eugene Matveichuk are also highly rated.
