Position

Max has a broad commercial practice covering a wide range of contractual and other business disputes (including commercial fraud) often with a significant international element. In recent years, he has acted on an increasing number of shareholder disputes (principally unfair prejudice petitions and derivative actions). 

Prior to coming to the Bar, Max had a successful career as an investment banker and trader which gives him a first-hand understanding of financial markets and products (including complex derivative instruments). This background has proved invaluable in the financial markets and related disputes for which Max is regularly instructed. A facility with numbers (Max has been described as having a “tremendous head for figures”) and a real understanding of finance has also proved of great benefit in other areas of his practice (e.g. claims for loss of profits and share valuation issues) and gives him a great advantage when cross-examining expert accounts in such areas.

Max has well-recognised experience and expertise in commercial fraud claims and specialises in obtaining and responding to freezing injunctions and all related pre-emptive remedies. In common with other areas of his practice, this frequently involves significant jurisdiction and applicable law issues. Max is also regularly instructed in relation to international arbitrations governed by bodies including the ICC, the LCIA and the LME.
