Oliver advises corporate clients, institutions and individuals on a broad range of contentious matters. His work includes complex civil fraud, contractual and trust disputes, and often has an international element. He also handles regulatory investigations.
Oliver is a member of the Commercial Litigation team within the Disputes department. Oliver deals with a broad range of disputes, usually from an early stage. While he is trained to find ways to avoid litigation wherever possible, most of his work is devoted to litigating complex High Court cases. Clients also benefit from his experience in mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
Cases on which Oliver has recently worked have included advising an ultra-high net worth individual in a nine-figure High Court claim for misrepresentation and advising the members of a charity on a complex fraud dispute. He has also advised a UK-based derivatives broker on claims brought against it throughout Europe in breach of contract, one limb of which advanced to the Supreme Court.
