Radcliffe Chambers


Jeremy Cousins QC specialises in substantial commercial, commercial chancery (including trusts), banking and professional negligence disputes.


In 2014 he was in the leading banking and solicitors’ breach of trust case of AIB v Redler in the Supreme Court, and he appeared for the claimants in the major case of Rosserlane v Credit Suisse (concerning the sale of an interest in an oil field in Azerbaijan). He is also involved in the claim made by a group of shareholders against Lloyds Banking Group and some of its former directors in relation to the HBOS acquisition in 2009. This case has received extensive coverage in the press. In 2015 Jeremy Cousins QC was instructed to prepare submissions for various bondholders resisting Lloyds Banking Group’s unsuccessful attempt in BNY Mellon Corporate Trustee Services v LBG Capital No 1 and another to bring about an early redemption of part of a multi-billion pound bond issue by affiliates of Lloyds Banking Group in 2009.

Many of his cases are landmark decisions, cited in leading textbooks such as Chitty on Contracts, Snell’s Equity, Megarry & Wade’s Law of Real Property, Clerk & Lindsell on Torts, and Jackson & Powell on Professional Liability, in various fields – Redler in banking and professional liability, Ali v Lane , Shogun v Hudson and AIB v Martin in contractual interpretation, Unique Pub Properties v Beer Barrels in procurement of breach of contract, and Acton v Graham Pearce in solicitor’s negligence and loss of opportunity damages.
