As a team leader, advocate and strategist, Will leads the representation of clients in complex, high-value and unconventional disputes around the world. He has a major focus on international arbitration, having acted in almost 50 commercial and investment arbitration cases, under all major institutional rules and on every continent. But he benefits from maintaining a broader practice, which includes litigating in England and in jurisdictions around the world. He is especially experienced in complicated jurisdictional disputes and procedural litigation relating to arbitration. This range of perspective helps him to craft sophisticated strategies for both claimants and defendants. He believes passionately in achieving his client’s objectives and receives praise in Chambers and Partners for his ‘strong business acumen’.

He acts for a diverse range of clients, including international banks, large corporations, state-owned companies, funds and individuals. No two cases are alike. What they have in common is a requirement for smart lawyering and creative problem solving. He has achieved wins for his clients in disputes between joint venture partners, claims arising from the sale and purchase of assets and businesses, pricing disputes under complex derivative transactions and elaborate debt and enforcement actions. He has deep sector experience in energy, oil and gas, mining, telecoms and financial services. Many of his cases involve injunction applications and other forms of urgent interim relief.

Will’s effective and impactful strategies place him in demand with a broad spectrum of commercial arbitration, investment arbitration and litigation cases, in both UK courts and overseas.
