Credit Suisse Group applied to the English High Court last week to initiate formal legal proceedings against Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp over a $440 million (CHF414 million) dispute, according to the Financial Times.

The claims are related to Credit Suisse’s Greensill-linked supply chain finance funds lent to SoftBank-backed Katerra, a US construction group, the FT reported on Thursday. Credit Suisse is trying to recoup hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of its wealthiest clients.
