Henry Reid‘s practice covers a wide array of commercial, chancery and financial services matters with an emphasis on commercial litigation, contentious and non-contentious financial services, regulatory investigations and banking law.
A former pupil of Outer Temple, Henry returns to us after building a career in both legal services and financial services. He recently spent five years at Signature Litigation LLP, a specialist law firm handling major and complex litigation, arbitration and regulatory investigations. During his time there, Henry worked on a number of significant matters, most notably on disputes in the Commercial Court concerning civil fraud, banking and finance and professional negligence as well as advising and structuring potential claims on behalf of clients, including on potential group action claims.
Prior to this, Henry worked in the financial services practices of two large US firms focussing on the provision of regulatory advice, representing individuals in regulatory and criminal investigations and on claims concerning the purported mis-selling of financial products and wider issues concerning manipulation of certain benchmark rates.
Henry is an Executive Committee member of FSLA and member of Chatham House. He said of his appointment “I am delighted to have made the move to the Bar and to have joined a set of Outer’s calibre with their range of first class expertise. I hope to contribute to what is an already strong though clearly burgeoning commercial practice. I look forward to getting started right away.”
Chief Executive, Rebecca Priestley, said “We are delighted to welcome Henry to the commercial team at Outer Temple Chambers. Henry is an impressive and experienced commercial lawyer with exceptional client care skills, strongly aligned to Outer Temple’s client focused ethos, and we are confident this will be a successful collaboration.”
Head of the Business Department, Keith Bryant QC, added that “Henry brings a wealth of experience particularly within the banking and financial markets which further strengthens our team’s offering. We are looking forward to working with him and continuing to provide a tailored and outstanding service.”
