Lawyer Rankings(2019 Silks) Ranked: Tier 1
3 Verulam Buildings is ‘evidently a strong set with breadth and depth of quality‘ and clients report that its members are ‘very user-friendly‘. The set is known for its expertise in banking and commercial litigation but its members also appear frequently in court and arbitration cases concerning oil fields, mines and technical issues related to the operation of oil and gas pipelines. New silks Christopher Harris QC, who represented the claimant in Forum International v OOS International which concerned high-value oil exploration assets in Brazil, and Nicholas Craig QC are among the set’s most active members in energy disputes. Juniors Paul Wee, who appeared in English enforcement proceedings concerning the $50bn arbitral awards obtained by former shareholders of Yukos under the Energy Charter Treaty, and Jane Davies Evans are highly recommended; Mark Wassouf is a rising star in chambers. ‘The clerks are good – responsive, approachable and keen to help‘, remarks one client.
Nicholas Craig QC –3 Verulam Buildings ‘A great advocate for factually complex matters, where the tribunal may not have the same experience in the subject matter. He is also very good at reading tribunals.’(2019 Silks) Ranked: Tier 1 (2019 Silks) Ranked: Tier 1 (2019 Silks) Ranked: Tier 1 (2019 Silks) Ranked: Tier 1 (Leading silks) Ranked: Tier 1
