PCB Litigation is delighted to be rated once again as a tier 1 firm for civil fraud and perhaps “the pre-eminent boutique” in London’s civil fraud arena, with The Legal 500 in particular focussing on our successful defence of a $1bn claim arising out of Saudi Arabia and the firm’s extending reach to some of the world’s emerging markets. Steven Philippsohn and Anthony Riem are both recognised as leading individuals for civil fraud. Steven is described as a “guru”, a “strategic thinker” and a “master strategist”, Anthony as “brilliant”, “wonderful with clients” and with “wide range of knowledge”, whilst Trevor is also described as “brilliant” as well as “an excellent litigator”. The firm has also been highly ranked for its work in the fields of commercial and banking litigation, and recognised for our work both for and against banks.
Jon Felce was quoted in an article on the rise of litigation boutiques (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/rise-litigation-boutiques-jonny-quinlivan):
“In my experience, flourishing specialist dispute resolution practices such as PCB Litigation offer a lean, flexible, dynamic and innovative alternative to the traditional law firm model, providing bespoke and cost-effective solutions for clients, many of whom are clients of domestic or international law firms who for various reasons may not be considered suitable for the case.
The quality, significance, and value of the work undertaken is on a par with top firms – as reflected by rankings in legal commentaries – as is the work’s international dimension (in our case in particular by being part of a specialist ICC-endorsed network of fraud experts called FraudNet). To name but a few highlights of the type of matters pursued, in my two and a half years at PCB Litigation we have been involved in a billion dollar cross-border case ranked in The Lawyer’s Top 20 for the year, succeeded in the Privy Council, and obtained ground-breaking new orders.”
