Jeremy Cousins QC

Call: 1977 | Silk: 1999

Queen's Counsel

Jeremy Cousins QC specialises in substantial professional negligence, commercial, commercial chancery (including trusts) and banking disputes.

He has appeared in numerous leading cases, including the very important and well-known banking and solicitors’ breach of trust case AIB v Redler in the Supreme Court, the major, and very high value, banking dispute in Rosserlane v Credit Suisse and in Dreamvar v Mishcon de Reya, a landmark case on solicitors’ breach of trust and negligence in conveyancing transactions, which led to the rewriting of the Law Society’s Code for Completion by Post in 2019. In 2021 he appeared in the Supreme Court in Mathew v Sedman (judgment awaited), which turns upon the critically important issue in limitation cases as to the ascertainment of precisely when time begins to run against a claimant.

Jeremy is consistently recommended by the leading legal directories for professional liability, commercial and banking litigation.

"His knowledge, manner with clients and composed nature are second to none."
