AXA UK PLC
We advised AXA UK PLC in connection with a claim brought against it under a sale and purchase agreement where proceedings were brought before the High Court.
Bank of New York Mellon SA/NV (BNYM)
We acted in Commercial Court proceedings brought by the Republic of Kazakhstan and the National Bank of Kazakhstan against BNYM (and other defendants). The trial was a landmark case as it was the UK’s first fully virtual trial (necessitated by the COVID-19 national lockdown) and was live streamed on YouTube.
UK Lehman group
We advised the administrators of three companies in the UK Lehman group, in respect of proceedings commenced against them in New York by Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. Whilst the dispute arose in the context of the Lehman Group, it is at its core a breach of contract claim. This was a complex, high value dispute concerning the proper construction of a settlement agreement, which also involved complex jurisdictional issues.
Glencore International AG
We represented Glencore International AG, one of the world’s leading mining and trading groups, in its defence of a breach of contract claim brought by Minera Las Bambas SA and MMG Swiss Finance AG arising out of the sale by GIAG of a large copper mine in South America. Ultimately the matter settled on confidential terms after five days’ trial after flaws in the Claimants’ disclosure were exposed during the cross-examination of their witnesses.
