Cooke, Young & Keidan LLP is a boutique law firm with a significant workload in the fraud space. The team is active in representing both corporate and private clients in domestic and multi-jurisdictional matters. The team was bolstered by the arrival of Natalie Todd and Jon Felce who joined in early 2022 from PCB Byrne. Lydia Danon‘s broad fraud practice also encompasses crypto-related matters, and consultant Philip Young is a ‘doyen of the London boutique litigation market’.
Cooke, Young & Keidan LLP is well-known for its work acting for clients in litigation against major banks, including representing them in both arbitration and court proceedings. The litigation boutique is adept at handling claims of misrepresentation, misselling and fraud, including follow-on proceedings from regulatory action, and also defends clients against enforcement proceedings brought by banks. Elsewhere, the practice has a growing presence in disputes pertaining to fintech and cryptocurrency. Key figures in the practice include Sinead O’Callaghan, who has expertise handling disputes pertaining to a broad range of financial instruments; and Stephen Elam, who gets ‘to the kernal of an issue’ and draws on his past experience in-house at a derivatives brokerage to act on matters involving complex products. The practice brought on Natalie Todd and Jon Felce from PCB Byrne in April 2022, both of whom win praise from clients. Philip Young, a ‘doyen of the London boutique litigation market’, is now a consultant to the firm and taking a mid-career break.
