Position

Bobby is, as described in the legal directories, a “rising star” who is “staggeringly clever” and “noted for his advocacy capabilities and the practical approach he takes to cases.”

He has a very busy practice focusing on commercial disputes, including civil fraud – with extensive experience of freezing injunctions, as well as Russian/CIS disputes; company and insolvency; commercial trusts; and pensions. Bobby appears frequently in both the Commercial and Chancery Courts as well as in arbitrations. He has substantial offshore experience and has been called to the bar in the BVI.

Bobby recognises the importance of a detailed and analytical approach, and combines this with pragmatism and tenacity.
