4 New Square (Chambers of Mark Cannon QC)

Position

George has extensive experience of commercial disputes with a real focus on construction, international arbitration and costs. George acts on substantial domestic and international claims, which recently include multiple disputes arising from three separate PFI contracts (worth £2billion, £6billion and £800 million) for the management of road networks, major motorways and a waste management facility, a complex arbitration claim worth in excess of £100million relating to a nuclear facilities construction project, and disputes relating to novel cheque scanning facilities for the whole of the UK. In costs, George has been instructed as sole costs counsel on some of the seminal costs cases and has particular experience of group litigation. Recent costs cases include for the Mirror Newspaper in the phone hacking litigation, in the Mau Mau litigation against the UK Foreign Office, for hundreds of claims by army personnel for hearing loss, one of the largest product liability claims relating to defective hip implants, and for 365 local authorities in the substantial “property searches” litigation.
