The article focuses on the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) test case which involves all the finest lawyers in Great Britain. The case, which has already started last July 27, 2007, has its inception in the wake of a deluge of claims that bank overdraft charges are becoming unfair. To defend the banks' sides, Simmons & Simmons is to act for Barclays; Ashurst for Abbey; Linklaters for Royal Bank of Scotland; Clifford Chance for Clydesdale; and Lovells for Lloyds TSB.
