He has particular experience in international arbitration and has acted in several high-value, complex cases, including a recent multi-US$billion ICC arbitration in New York in the telecoms sector, LCIA proceedings in London for a US-based oil drilling company, ICC and UNCITRAL gas-price arbitrations for a multinational energy company and UNCITRAL proceedings in Lagos for an Africa-based telecoms company.
His recent English litigation work includes cases in the Technology and Construction Court (where he has particular experience in telecoms and IT-related cases), a professional negligence case in the Chancery Division and a breach of warranty claim in the Commercial Court.
Matthew also advises on such matters as construction of contracts, breach of contract, termination, limitation of liability and the early stage management of potentially contentious issues. He frequently advises on governing law/jurisdiction and various aspects of arbitral procedure and ADR.
