Roger Laville


Roger is a member of the commercial team and specialises in finance, insolvency and company disputes.

His finance and insolvency practice encompasses working for all of the major banks, as well as specialist lenders, and insolvency practitioners from leading firms. He is therefore fully familiar with the commercial and reputational factors which corporate clients must take into account, the regulatory framework within which financial services firms operate and the financial imperatives which apply to insolvencies.

Fraud, dishonesty and breach of duty by directors are a regular feature of the cases Roger works on, sometimes necessitating injunctive relief, and many involve cross-border inter-jurisdictional issues.

Before being called to the Bar in 2015, Roger was a solicitor at Addleshaw Goddard and Matthew Arnold & Baldwin (now Dentons UKME), where he was a partner in the banking and finance litigation team. Having worked as a solicitor, Roger knows the importance of giving clients clear pragmatic advice that enables them to take properly informed decisions, and of being easy to contact and ready to talk through problems informally. He especially relishes cases which throw up seemingly intractable problems, or that require imaginative analysis to identify a solution.
