Career

Oberon accepts instructions in insolvency, banking, property and general commercial litigation. He appears regularly in the High Court and County Court on matters within these practice areas.

Oberon’s expertise in corporate and personal insolvency involves contentious and advisory matters of all sizes, ranging from the Lehman Brothers Waterfall I and Waterfall II disputes and the Bernie Madoff fraud litigation (Primeo), to administration applications and applications to set aside statutory demands, and injunctions to restrain the presentation or advertisement of winding up petitions.

In banking, Oberon has experience in a wide variety of disputes involving the mis-selling of products, disputes concerning the construction and rectification of facility agreements, and the enforcement of lending facilities. He is currently junior counsel on a £6.5 million litigation brought by a Middle Eastern Bank against a prominent businessman, involving a claim on a guarantee and alleged breaches of the former Lending Code.

In property, Oberon’s practice ranges from possession proceedings brought by mortgagees and landowners, to disputes over beneficial interests in land, equity of exonerations claims and the enforceability of security interests over land. He is also instructed on property matters which intersect with insolvency law, such as disclaimer and property proceedings brought by officeholders.

Before tenancy, Oberon completed his pupillage at a top tier commercial and insolvency set of chambers.

Oberon read Law at Downing College, Cambridge, where he was awarded the Squire and Harris scholarships for achieving First Class results in examinations. He is also a Lord Denning scholar at Lincoln’s Inn.
