Terence Dickens

Legal Director


Career & Experience

Terence is an experienced disputes lawyer and Legal Director in the commercial litigation team. He specialises in financial services litigation (including D&O defence) and procurement disputes, including contentious regulatory matters and related insurance coverage advice.

Terence has advised numerous financial institutions/retail financial services firms, corporates, private individuals and public sector clients, including local authorities and central government departments on a wide range of financial and commercial disputes.

Terence frequently acts for IFAs and investment managers in contentious matters, including defending claims and complaints of mis-selling/breach of mandate before both the Courts and the FOS, as well as FCA investigations and disciplinary proceedings and in respect of restrictive covenant and breach of confidentiality issues arising upon the exit of senior personnel/advisors.

Terence takes a risk-based approach, with cost-benefit firmly in mind, and is keen advocate of ADR. He seeks to keep relationships on track by focussing upon both dispute avoidance and the resolution of disputes at an early stage, with commercial considerations front and centre in his advice.

Outside of the office, Terence is a keen football fan (mostly watching or coaching his children these days, but he still likes to think he can ‘make a difference’ in the odd game of five a side with the firm’s team).

Accolades

  • Member of Financial Services Lawyers Association
  • Member of Procurement Lawyers Association
