He focuses his practice on international commercial and investment arbitration, as well as cross-border litigations involving asset tracing, debt recovery and fraud litigation. His practice also encompasses enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, taking of evidence abroad and obtaining conservatory measures in support of foreign proceedings.
