A decade has passed since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Since then, there has been a large number of proceedings arising from claims which touch upon responsibilities of financial advisers regarding the sale of financial products in particular at common law. In this seminar, Mr José-Antonio Maurellet SC will share his experience and insights on this topic.

José-Antonio Maurellet SC read law at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University and for the PCLL at the University of Hong Kong. He was called to the Bar in 2000 and to the Inner Bar in 2016. His practice is largely commercial, with an emphasis on company and insolvency law. He also regularly acts in disputes arising from banking/financial services, in particular alleged mis-selling of financial products.
