Chris Sweeney, Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution, Fieldfisher

I am an senior associate in the Dispute Resolution department and a member of the Russian and CIS Group with nearly 10 years' experience of advising clients in relation to a wide range of contentious issues.

I have extensive High Court experience, including high-value multi-jurisdictional contractual and commercial disputes.  My clients include corporate entities as well as high net worth individuals.

My recent cases at Fieldfisher include:

  • Acting for a high net worth individual in relation to a worldwide freezing order worth £2.6bn, including advising on whether proposed transactions can be carried out by the client within the terms of the order and assisting on an application to discharge the order.
  • Acting for companies owning the image rights of a Premier League footballer in a High Court claim.
  • Acting for a high net worth individual in relation to a worldwide freezing order worth £200m, including assisting on an application to vary the terms of the freezing order.

I am currently part of a team working on one of the Lawyer magazine's "Top 20 Case of 2019".

In my spare time I enjoy running, boxing, swimming and searching for my children in soft play centres.
