Alain Choo-Choy QC is a member of One Essex Court, a leading set of commercial law barristers’ chambers headed by Lord Grabiner QC in London. He has practised from these chambers since joining as a pupil in 1991 and was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2009. Alain is fluent in French.

Alain’s practice covers the full range of commercial litigation, arbitration and advisory work. He has a particular interest and specialist experience in banking, financial services, civil fraud (including asset freezing and tracing relief) and energy disputes. In recent years, he has been involved in a significant amount of Lehman-related litigation and advisory work, arising out of the Lehman bankruptcies/insolvencies in the USA, England, Switzerland and the Netherlands. He has also acted in several Russian/former CIS oligarch shareholder disputes, including a multibillion-dollar dispute relating to the world’s largest aluminium company.

Alain has experience at all court levels, including the High Court, Court of Appeal and House of Lords/Supreme Court. In addition, he has acted in disputes before foreign courts, including in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and the BVI (where he is also admitted to the Bar). He also regularly appears as an advocate in domestic and international commercial arbitrations, whether seated in England or abroad.

Alain is recommended by Chambers & Partners: UK (banking and finance; commercial dispute resolution; energy and natural resources; fraud: civil; and international arbitration: general commercial); The Legal 500 (banking and finance; commercial litigation; and civil fraud), and Legal Experts (banking; commercial litigation; and fraud).
