Wayne DaviesEversheds Sutherland (International) LLP

Able to draw upon substantial resources from Cardiff, as well as across its UK network, the ‘sophisticated and well-resourced practice’ at Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP has the strength-in-depth and critical mass to handle a huge range and volume of professional negligence work for claimants and defendants in the financial services sector. Nick Rundle heads up the claimant offering which continues to receive a tremendous flow of work from lenders, often on a contingent fee basis, stemming primarily from secured commercial and residential lending. The ‘insightful and decisive’ Wayne Davies is particularly skilled in cases involving professional negligence issues arising from commercial lending and fraud matters and large portfolios both under commercial ownership or owned by individual buy-to-let landlords. Gareth Vowles spearheads the firm’s defendant-side offering, which regularly represents intermediaries, lenders and asset managers in claims arising from alleged negligent advice and the mis-selling of financial products. James Coleman‘s work straddles both the claimant and defendant side and includes bringing professional negligence actions for banks alleging mortgage fraud.
