Financial market participants perform complex work requiring extensive technical knowledge. Their duty of due diligence is significant and often difficult to fully grasp. When legal disputes arise, the amounts involved are often substantial.
It is sometimes the case that actors in the field of asset management conduct themselves dishonestly and fail to comply with the rules in force or with their clients’ instructions. Those investors affected by such misconduct may therefore claim damages for the losses suffered.
In most cases, we find that such disputes end in settlement. However, it can happen that one of the parties decides to bring the case before the civil courts or an arbitral tribunal. Such proceedings are lengthy with an often unclear outcome.
