PCB Litigation has been identified by The Times as a leading law firm in the field of “financial crime & fraud & regulatory”.
PCB Litigation maintained its top tier Civil Fraud ranking in the Legal 500 as well as being ranked in Commercial Litigation and Banking Litigation. PCB is said to offer “unrivalled boutique expertise in the field of fraud”, headed by Steven Philippsohn “a lateral thinker extraordinaire” who “can see brilliant points outside the box.” Anthony Riem is said to have “a marvellous rapport with clients,” with Trevor Mascarenhas joining Steven and Anthony in being ranked as a leading individual. Jon Felce, described as “a calm and collected presence” is also ranked as a next generation lawyer in the field of banking litigation, where both he and Nick Ractliff are said to be “dedicated and thorough”.
For the second year in a row, Steven Philippsohn and Trevor Mascarenhas have been recommended for litigation by Who’s Who Legal, out of only 35 English solicitors selected. The directory said:
“PCB Litigation’s Trevor Mascarenhas is a distinguished name in the English litigation market who sources give high praise to in our research this year. He is particularly adept on cross-border asset-tracing and real estate litigation. Steven Philippsohn is a well-respected figure in the litigation space, with sources praising his wealth of expertise on asset recovery matters.”
In an unusual judgment, the Court of Appeal allowed an appeal brought by PCB Litigation by which the opposing party was required to increase the amount of security for costs it had previously been ordered to provide to our client.
