I advise clients on complex, high-value international disputes, both in litigation proceedings and in arbitration proceedings under various institutional rules and systems of law. I have particular experience of the Asian disputes market, having spent two years practising in Singapore (2017-2018).
My recent experience includes:

  • Advising a high net worth individual and associated company in consolidated LCIA arbitrations under a joint venture agreement and various related agreements.
  • Advising an international oil trading company in an LCIA arbitration against a former shareholder of the company, arising out of the latter's alleged fraudulent activity.
  • Advising a Southeast Asian State in an UNCITRAL investment treaty arbitration commenced by an alleged dual-national.
  •  Advising a renewable energy investor in defending complex commercial claims (ICC) arising from investments impacted by political upheaval in Thailand.
  • Advising a North Asian State in an UNCITRAL investment treaty arbitration relating to an aborted M&A transaction.
  • Advising a State in a challenge of an arbitration award in the English High Court under section 67 of the Arbitration Act 1996.
  • Advising a leading Asian construction firm in a dispute relating to delay to the construction of a power station.

I co-authored a chapter on Joint Venture Disputes in R. King (ed.) Arbitration in the International Energy Industry (Globe Law and Business, 2019) and the UK chapter in P. Swain (ed.) Shareholder Rights and Shareholder Activism (Chambers Global Practice Guide, 2019). I have also co-authored articles on investment treaty and energy-related issues published in Transnational Dispute Management.
