The Regulatory Litigation team at Russell-Cooke recently concluded a lengthy dispute on behalf of its longstanding client the Law Society. Partners John Gould and John Weaver lead the team which successfully retrieved money paid by the Law Society's compensation fund following its intervention of the BJ Brandon Group.

The case reflects the firm's growing prominence in the regulatory field. Chambers UK 2009 names Russell-Cooke as one of the country's foremost firms for professional discipline work and lists John Gould and John Weaver, along with Peter Cadman and Matthew Bosworth, as leaders in the field.

David Edwards QC, Michael Holmes and Jessica Sutherland of 7 Kings Bench Walk were instructed as counsel and Russell-Cooke's Bhavini Kalaria and Matthew Irvine made up the team.
