Jenny Raymond

Partner, Head of Banking and Financial Services Disputes Dispute Resolution

About me

Whether you’ve had a claim brought against you or are looking for someone to help you resolve a dispute before it gets out of hand, I’ll use my problem-solving skills and strategic thinking to develop a firm case. I evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your position and provide clear, concise advice when you need it most.

I’m driven to get the right results for my clients, and work logically and methodically through the evidence to find the angle they might not have considered. I work for PLCs, large multinational corporations, SMEs, partnerships and individuals across a wide range of industries, using my City experience to provide expertise in cases of banking, financial and insurance disputes.

Out of the office, I like to keep fit by running and going to the gym, and I enjoy travelling – I’ve visited over 25 countries so far. I’m also passionate about supporting the Gloucestershire business community, and am a board member for GFirst LEP.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

How much are court proceedings likely to cost and can I recover my costs from the other side?

Litigation is a costly process and it’s important to be mindful of this fact throughout the proceedings. Nevertheless, we will provide up-to-date costs at each stage, and ensure that you are kept informed as to the likely costs to trial. The usual position is that the “winning” party recovers a proportion of its costs from the “losing” party; this is usually 60–70%.

How long do I have to bring a claim?

There are certain timeframes that apply if you want to bring a claim to court. While this is a complex area of law, the general rule of thumb is that you have six years to bring a claim for breach of contract and/or negligence. However, other timeframes do apply so it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.

Will I have to give evidence in court?

Only a very small percentage of cases end up at a full trial with a judge determining the outcome. Where possible, we encourage you to resolve the dispute through mediation or arbitration, and will advise you as to the risks, merits, and commercial realities of the claim. Nevertheless, if a settlement isn’t reached and the case does proceed to trial, you need to be aware that you will be cross-examined on your evidence at court.
