Banking and Finance Dispute Resolution

| Print |

HWL Ebsworth has a depth of experience in non-lending loss exposures and litigation for banking and financial services clients, driven by a national team of partners.

We work across a number of banking products, and a number of customer segments from retail to high end corporate and institutional customers.

HWL Ebsworth's national team regularly advises on all matters relating to non-lending loss and operational risk including:

  • Fraud, both internal and external/forgeries;
  • Mistaken payments;
  • Conversion claims;
  • Cheque law;
  • Freezing orders;
  • Subpoenas;
  • Garnishee Orders;
  • Misleading or deceptive conduct;
  • Unconscionable conduct;
  • Negligence;
  • Breach of contract; and
  • Equitable remedies.

The leader of our Banking and Finance - Dispute Resolution team nationally headed the Dispute Resolution Group at a major Australian Bank and is well versed in all these areas.

We are very mindful of the costs of litigation and the fact that costs for non-lending loss exposures cannot, as a rule be passed through to customers.

If a matter becomes litigious, we appear at Court in all interlocutory steps of a proceeding which minimises costs and ensures that the persons with the best knowledge of the case are representing the client in court.

We are proud to provide our services to a broad range of banks, including Australia & New Zealand Banking Group, Bank of Queensland, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Macquarie Bank and Westpac Banking Corporation.
