Commercial Litigation


Partner and Head of Commercial Litigation, Leeds

Mo specialises in complex commercial disputes and investigations predominantly for large public and private sector organisations, and overseas governments. 

Mo specialises in large scale fraud and corruption investigations and recovery action (including working with enforcement authorities in the UK and overseas), as well as high-value commercial disputes relating to a range of commercial matters including fraud, IT and PFI projects, product recall and corporate claims arising from acquisitions. He acts on emergency injunctions (search and freezing injunctions) and his clients span sectors as diverse as government, manufacturing, financial services, technology, energy and health.

He has also acted on several fraud and corruption claims both in the UK and overseas, including advising on Bribery Act compliance issues.

Cases in which Mo has advised include defending a major public sector body from claims exceeding £100m in relation to the cancellation of a large PFI project. He also acted on an internal investigation into historic corruption/fraud by a senior director within a FTSE 250 listed group, defending an HMRC investigation arising as a result and pursuing claims against the director responsible.


Mo joined Stewarts as a partner in 2013 after spending 14 years at Pinsent Masons, the last six as a partner.


Mo is an accredited mediator (ADR Group), and a member of the IBA Asset Recovery Sub Committee and the Commercial Fraud Lawyers Association.
