Chris’ client-base consists primarily of companies, partnerships and LLPs and/or senior individuals within the same who find themselves facing, or who wish to avoid, significant commercial and/or employment disputes.
Chris regularly demonstrates his ability to quickly assimilate the essentials of different business sectors and to then successfully obtain or resist injunctive relief from the Courts.
According to Chambers and Partners, Chris "is often the first port of call in high-value City disputes and is particularly recommended for injunctive relief cases”.
Chris has extensive experience of both applying for and opposing applications for freezing relief, search orders and enforcement of restrictive covenants and fiduciary duties. His work regularly involves intellectual property and other tangential areas.
His injunction work in 2015 has thus far included oil/gas and franchise cases.
Many but by no means all of Chris’ injunction cases will result in speedy trials. In respect of these, Chambers and Partners describes him as being "A tremendous cross-examiner and effective fighter” who "produces clear, crisp and persuasive arguments”.
