One Essex Court

One Essex Court is a leading set with a specialism in commercial disputes and an “impressive” international reputation. The firm performs particularly well across our research in banking and finance, arbitration, civil fraud and energy and natural resources. This year the set receives 31 recommendations across a total of 8 practice areas.

Banking and finance is the set’s strongest showing in our research with 10 inclusions in total. Daniel Toledano QC has a wide-ranging commercial practice encompassing court, arbitration and advisory work and is a “stand-out name at the bar”. He also features in our arbitration chapter. David Wolfson QC specialises in complex and high-value disputes, and his “impressive track record” and “vast experience” makes him a “first choice” for clients. The “fantastic” Stephen Auld QC is recommended for his banking and finance, and civil fraud work, which often carries a regulatory focus. Anthony Grabiner QC is a “true dean of the bar” whose work in the energy and natural resources sector also sees him listed. Laurence Rabinowitz QC is a “leading light” and garners recognition for his arbitration, energy and natural resources and civil fraud practices as well as his work in banking and finance. He is a “stellar advocate” with an “excellent style of delivery”. Ian Glick QC is an “unflappable” international commercial arbitrator who impresses with his “poise” and “excellent style of delivery”. Craig Orr QC is a “powerhouse of knowledge” who boasts an “enviable client list” and also specialises in civil fraud and insurance and reinsurance.

Arbitration is also a top area at the chambers with seven names featured. Christopher Style QC uses his “invaluable sector experience”, gained during his 35 years as a solicitor at Linklaters, to make sure clients “are given the best advice”. He is a “first port of call” for many. Peter Leaver QC is a “persuasive speaker” whose expertise in heavyweight and highly detailed contractual work for corporations and institutions makes him a “true asset” to clients. Alan Redfern is a “hugely experienced junior” with a specialty in international commercial arbitration who is “extremely well thought of” by peers.
