Hugh has a broad commercial and chancery practice with a particular emphasis on cases involving fraud or breach of fiduciary duty. He is recommended by the leading directories in his principal practice areas, where he has recently been described as “one to watch as a new silk” and “one of those people who inspires confidence”. His practice has been dominated from late 2010 to early 2013 by his work first as junior and then leading counsel in the BTA Bank v Ablyazov litigation (trial reported at [2013] EWHC 510 (Comm)). Through the BTA Bank litigation and many other cases (including Antonio Gramsci v Recoletos [2010] EWHC 1134 (Comm), Cherney v Neuman [2009] EWHC 1743, Hugh has very considerable experience of obtaining and resisting interim relief such as freezing injunctions and disclosure orders. Many of his cases do not involve fraud, covering areas as diverse as contractual disputes, partnership, company, trusts and probate and breach of confidence.
