Acumen invites you to attend our breakfast seminar on Disclosure from a Bank at The Delaunay, a continental brasserie a 5 minutes walk from the RCJ.

An invaluable opportunity to learn from banking professionals to benefit your banking practice –
Join up to 9 other solicitors and barristers in a stimulating teach-in which will help you extract the information you need for your case.

You will be led by Ambasuthan Jananayagam, former senior banking professional at several global banks and founder of Acumen (see profile here). Highly experienced in assisting London’s top legal teams at all stages of complex banking litigation, Suthan will equip you with the skills and confidence to tackle the challenges of gaining a comprehensive, yet focused disclosure from a bank.

Maximise your requests and strengthen your client’s position by gaining a real understanding of how banks work from the inside –

In our seminar you will gain a sound and detailed understanding of the internal structure of global banks and their typical ways of operating. You will learn about:

* The component parts of a bank: key functions, their evolution and purpose;
* The people: their incentives and typical working patterns;
* The systems applied by key desks: the potential significance of information held by a desk;
* Competing agendas within banks on vital issues including risk, suitability and profit;
* The challenges of the RFI: on extracting critical information.

Learn how to zero in on the right disclosure

You will learn about targeted searches and requests. We will show you how we pinpoint and shortlist the departments of a bank which are most likely to yield the information sought over a range of common banking litigation issues pertaining to derivatives and other financial products.

You will gain detailed knowledge about the operation of a bank which will help you approach disclosure and RFI’s confidently, with tangible results on your case, practice and team.
