New silk who receives glowing recommendations from a number of solicitors and barristers. His technical and advocacy skills when handling commercial cases in the oil and power industries are worthy of a silk. Haydon has recently appeared in several disputes in the upstream and midstream markets.
"Bright, diligent and someone who plays his cards right in order to get the right result." "His oral advocacy is very strong and he's an excellent tactician."
Recent work: In Rosserlane v Credit Suisse, Haydon successfully defended Credit Suisse from Rosserlane’s appeal of a decision to dismiss their claim alleging a failure to obtain a proper price for their assets when they were sold to repay a loan. The case involved the valuation of an oil field in Azerbaijan and expert evidence on the estimate of oil reserves/resources.
