Within: Banking and finance (including consumer credit)

Fountain Court Chambers 'continues to excel in the area of banking and finance' and has 'great strength in depth' with 'a number of eminent barristers', according to sources. The set, which typically represents banks, has a broad spread of barristers covering every aspect of banking law, from the advisory to the crossover between the criminal and the regulatory spheres. A significant highlight saw Bankim Thanki QC lead the Ukraine's defence in the Court of Appeal against a $3bn Eurobond claim brought by Russia. Other notable cases included Property Alliance Group v RBS, in which Richard Handyside QC succesfully represented RBS in the Court of Appeal, and Marme v RBS, in which Timothy Howe QC, Laura John and Simon Atrill successfully represented the bank.
