Practice Areas

Guy joined Carter-Ruck in 1988 and has been a partner since 1990. As head of the firm’s International department Guy has a wide-ranging practice in the field of Public International Law, European Law and Human Rights involving administrative and regulatory processes with an international or diplomatic context.

Having developed his media law expertise under the personal tutelage of Peter Carter-Ruck, Guy has since acquired a special expertise in the law relating to economic sanctions. His work is at the forefront of the field of challenges to asset freezing measures, or ‘targeted sanctions’. He is highly rated in these areas by the legal directories and viewed as a sanctions expert.

Guy has represented and advised many clients who have challenged such sanctions measures before a range of tribunals including the High Court in London, the General Court and the ECJ in Luxembourg as well as before the United Nations Office of the Ombudsperson in New York. Frequently Guy has been able to deploy his media law expertise in the context of his sanctions work.

Guy coordinated the leading case on targeted sanctions, heading successful international efforts by Saudi Arabian businessman and philanthropist Sheikh Yassin Abdullah Kadi since 2001, to overturn asset freezing orders around the world, wrongly imposed in the aftermath of the horrific 11 September attacks.

Guy is also a media litigation and reputation management specialist and his practice has a particular emphasis on copyright, trademarks, breach of confidence and other intellectual property issues arising in a media context.
