UK is best place for court hearing

Feb 2012
Fraud updates

According to Steven Philippsohn, Senior Partner of PCB Litigation, this country currently offers the best jurisdiction for court hearings and due to the UK's centenary tradition in case law, judges' impartiality and assurance of fair and independent processes.

In a recent interview with the Law Society Gazette, Steven welcomed the opening of the Rolls Building as the world's biggest commercial court. Law professionals believe that this new infrastructure will cement even further the UK's reputation as the key jurisdiction in which to bring commercial litigation.

PCB Litigation Chambers and Partners Recommendation

Nov 2011
Fraud updates
The Chambers Directory published last month said of global asset recovery specialists PCB Litigation LLP: "An impressive array of clients beat a path to this fraud litigation boutique. Although not the largest practice in the market, it is an attractive proposition by virtue of its keen commitment to, and fine results in, this field. Significant work for the practice includes acting on the high stakes fraud and conspiracy litigation of Jenington International Inc & Others v Assaubayev." Steven Philippsohn is the lead lawyer here. Sources say he is "an experienced specialist" who is "deserving of recognition." He played a key role in the Jenington v Assaubayev dispute, including substantial asset tracing work. Trevor Mascarenhas wins plaudits for being "very hard-working" and having "very good judgement." In addition to advising on the multimillion-dollar Jenington v Assaubayev dispute, he also acts for the largest Ukrainian gas and oil company, Ukrnafta, in a high-value Stockholm arbitration. Anthony Riem also acted on the Jenington case, and is lauded by notable market sources: "He is efficient and is doing well." Read More
