Position

Drew is the only barrister in England and Wales who is also a qualified member of the Russian Bar. He has over 15 years of experience in litigation, advocacy and advisory work in Russia and other republics of the former Soviet Union, with specialist knowledge of Russian and CIS substantive and procedural law and its practical implementation. Drew specialises in both private and public law disputes that have a close connection to Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union, regardless of the judicial forum, and has advised or acted in litigation conducted in many jurisdictions, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, the British Virgin Islands, Cyprus, Georgia, Moldova, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Russia, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States. Drew is fully fluent in both English and Russian and is equally comfortable working in either language, and is often instructed to advise or appear as a Russian law expert in Western judicial proceedings and as an English law expert or party representative in proceedings conducted before tribunals in the Russian language in CIS member states and other countries of the former Soviet Union. On the human rights front, Drew has been instructed in or advised on dozens of cases before the European Court on Human Rights (ECtHR), and has experience in the successful application of its procedural rules, including obtaining confidentiality and priority orders, as well as interim relief. He also has specialist experience with human rights issues faced by NGOs and religious associations in civil rights, tax and property disputes. Drew accepts appointments to act as an arbitrator, and has experience in arbitrations conducted under ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL and ICAC (Russia) rules.
