Strengths

Adrian Beltrami QC
A very well-respected silk, regarded by his peers as a "straight bat" and an intellectually formidable opponent. He has an excellent practice in banking work, in particular, as well as recognised strengths in cases concerning freezing and search orders and interim remedies.
"A very steady and considered advocate who is decent to work with outside court and very effective in court." "He is taken seriously by the best at the Bar as he has got a great analytical mind and a very clear way of presenting an argument."
Recent work: Acted for Grant Thornton in two claims brought separately by Robert Tchenguiz and Vincent Tchenguiz. The claims are for alleged conspiracy to defraud and malicious prosecution arising out of the arrest of the Tchenguiz brothers in 2011, and are worth around GBP2.2 billion.
