We were retained to assist a prominent international bank regarding a multi-billion pound claim in the English courts. Our client had already successfully taken the other party to the Supreme Court, and was now seeking damages in the High Court. The client was seeking to secure media coverage immediately ahead of the trial, with a view to placing pressure on the other party to settle the quantum claim.
We secured a wide array of national and international media coverage that ramped up the pressure on the other party, as well as arranging for a number of prominent journalists to attend the first day of the trial. Upon the trial beginning, the other party requested that it be adjourned to allow for settlement discussions, which successfully concluded behind closed doors later that day.
