Me in a minute

For many years, I've advised major international clients and governments on their legal strategies and led international legal teams in resolving high profile and complex legal problems.

I have specialised in finding and developing imaginative and practical solutions to those problems, whether it was securing high profile assets worth $75 million from a Caribbean hiding place for the Turkish government, bringing investment treaty claims for expropriation for a global construction company or advising the Mauritius government on its ML legislation or its constitution, informed by experience and insights gained in the eye of the storm at the highest level.
