Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Kambiz is a partner in Akin Gump’s disputes team, focusing on complex cross-border commercial litigation and arbitration.

He has extensive experience of leading teams on a wide range of high-value and complex international disputes, often involving allegations of misconduct and fraud. His clients have included large international corporates, major financial institutions, media and technology companies, and a number of high-net-worth individuals, including Roman Abramovich.

Kambiz has advised on a number of "bet the company" disputes, freezing injunctions and anti-suit proceedings in support of domestic litigation and arbitration.

Representative cases include: acting for one of the largest property development companies in the Middle East and a Bahraini investment bank in a US$1 billion High Court multi-jurisdictional action involving allegations of conspiracy and breach of confidence (one of The Lawyer's top 20 cases of 2014); representing BVG in relation to claims in excess of US$200 million by JPMorgan under a single tranche collateralised debt obligation (one of The Lawyer's top 20 cases of 2014); acting for Roman Abramovich in a multibillion-dollar dispute for breach of contract, breach of trust and intimidation arising out of the creation of the Russian oil company Sibneft and the Russian aluminium company Rusal; acting for a high-net-worth individual on a US$1.2 billion LCIA dispute involving the acquisition of mining assets in Ukraine; acting for a consortium of Western bondholders in a US$250 million LCIA claim against a Russian debtor accused of fraud; and advising on asset recovery and derivatives disputes arising out of US insolvency proceedings surrounding the collapse of Enron Corp.

WWL says: The “fantastic” Kambiz Larizadeh is a well-established name in the market with an enviable list of clients.
