The Quincecare duty: a view from the Supreme Court


Louise Hutton KC, James Sheehan, Edward Mordaunt, Essex Court Chambers


All three of our speakers were involved at different stages in the Stanford International Bank v HSBC litigation which ended in the Supreme Court with HSBC’s successful strike out of Quincecare claims arising from the Ponzi scheme of Allen Stanford.  This talk will deal with the implications of Stanford v HSBC and of the Supreme Court’s subsequent decision in Philipp v Barclays, two of the most significant decisions of recent years in the field of banking litigation.  It promises to be of interest not only to financial and insolvency litigators, but also to those commercial litigators whose clients are increasingly affected by payment frauds where the scope of the Quincecare duty is almost always a key consideration.
