David Lewis QC has contributed a chapter to ‘The Guide to Advocacy – Fourth Edition’, published by Global Arbitration Review (GAR).
The biodiversity of international arbitrators may mean that there are no universally correct approaches to advocacy. Titled “Cultural Considerations in Advocacy: United Kingdom”, the chapter discusses general aspects of the UK approach to advocacy across areas of written advocacy, oral submissions and witness statements.
David is a specialist advocate who practises predominantly in international arbitration. He appears as lead counsel in a variety of commercial disputes, with a particular focus on cases involving energy and natural resources, civil fraud and international trade (including both commodities and shipping).
