RPC is a full-service international law firm with notable successes representing clients in their disputes, specifically litigation, arbitration and regulatory disputes. More than 250 of the firm’s lawyers undertake contentious work for clients in areas as broad as banking and financial markets, insurance, technology, IP, tax, media, retail and competition as well as restructuring and insolvency, to name but a few.
The firm is distinguished from its peers through a combination of complex, high-profile work, award-winning client service, financial risk sharing with clients and sector focus. On risk sharing, and reflecting the firm’s entrepreneurial approach to the legal market, RPC was an early adopter of litigation funding and creative fee arrangements, which continues to this day.
RPC’s cross-jurisdictional reach is significant, with locations in the UK (with a London headquarters), Hong Kong and Singapore.
Over the years, RPC has acted for a wide variety of clients, including hedge funds, HNW investors, financial institutions and insolvency office holders, often acting against the largest investment banks.
RPC is a founding member of the TerraLex network, and Mr Hart has personally contributed to the third edition of Banking Litigation, published by Sweet & Maxwell, and co-authored the England & Wales chapter of the 2019 ICLG Financial Services Disputes guide.
