Louis’ commercial chancery practice has a particular emphasis on insolvency, company law and commercial litigation, especially shareholder, director and financial disputes. He appears regularly in the Chancery Division and in the Mercantile/Commercial Court and has significant experience in the following, appearing against both juniors and silks. His caseload currently includes heavy and high value claims (in one of which he is being led) involving: interest rate swap mis-selling claims against various banks; a dispute over the proceeds of various ATE policies as between liquidators and other interested parties involving trust, estoppel and contractual interpretation issues; a high value s.994 petition which is running concurrent with a dispute between two of the parties in the Family Division; a high value wrongful trading action coupled with breach of duty claims against the former directors of a high profile failed group; various claw back actions under the Insolvency Act 1986 coupled with claims for accessory liability involving tracing remedies; and a long running dispute for a public authority concerning ownership of property subject to disclaimer and vesting order claims. Louis’ work often involves the seeking of interim remedies at short notice.Visit author website
