St John’s Chambers’ Financial Services expertise is second to none. Our barristers offer extensive regulatory and litigation experience to finance companies, corporations, regulatory bodies and individuals acting on behalf of both claimants and defendants.

We are also instructed on professional conduct matters and other issues arising under the FSA. We advise on commercial and chancery issues involving breaches of legislation and banking litigation generally.


As the number of cases being dealt with by way of mediation increases, our mediation team is on hand to help, as advisers, advocates and mediators. Our facilities are specifically designed to meet with clients’ needs for a mediation venue. Read more.
