Practice Areas

Charles has a wealth of experience in domestic, cross-border and international arbitration and litigation. His commercial chancery practice covers civil fraud actions, company and joint venture disputes and insolvency issues, dovetailing with his thriving commercial dispute resolution practice, which includes construction, franchising and sports related matters.

He acts regularly for firms and clients based in Europe, Russia, the Middle East, the Americas, Caribbean (particularly the Turks and Caicos Islands and The Bahamas) and the Far East. Much of Charles’ practice involves working with foreign Counsel, foreign law experts and with conflicts of laws issues.

Charles accepts instructions to act as an expert of English law in foreign proceedings.

At the start of his career, Charles spent three years in the International Arbitration and Litigation Group of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (UK) LLP. He has great experience working with clients, within a firm team and of advising and working on case management (including electronic data management) in document heavy cases of the highest value.

A member of the Middle Temple International Sub-Committee, Charles speaks regularly at international events. He is co-author of a leading practitioners’ text, Electronic Disclosure: Law & Practice (OUP).
