Our Services


Operating out of one of the world’s leading financial hubs, our multi-national, multi-cultural clients expect lawyers at Zaiwalla & Co to be leading exponents in contentious and non-contentious banking law. And we are. Our unique understanding of different cultures combined with our insights and experience of the British legal system mean that we are uniquely placed to achieve our banking clients’ commercial objectives. We were involved in the well-known banking case of Shah v HSBC [2009]  achieving success for our client in the UK Court of Appeal. This case had a worldwide impact on the way banks are required to follow compliance and reporting procedures. More recently we have acted for a number of Iranian banks in sanctions-related litigation including Iran’s largest private bank, Bank Mellat.

A willingness to take on difficult cases is unusual but our ability in testing new points and winning on the back of them is exceptional. Being innovative thinkers pays dividends for our clients. 

“A multi-cultural firm with a multi-cultural client base in the legal capital of the world. They understand us, what we want to achieve and how to get there.”
