Harris Bor

Harris Bor

Call: 2006; 2002 (Solicitor, England and Wales)

Harris is known for his dedication to fighting his client’s cause, commercial common-sense, and approachability. His practice covers all areas of international arbitration and commercial and company litigation, with a particular emphasis on corporate, joint venture, and fraud disputes. He appears routinely on his own and as part of a team in the English High Court, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts and before international arbitration tribunals.

Harris has acted in some of the largest Commercial Court shareholder and fraud disputes of recent years including Avonwick Holdings Ltd v Azitio Holdings & Ors, a multi-party billion-dollar dispute over interests in Ukrainian businesses, and Tchenguiz v Grant Thornton UK LLP & Ors, a substantial dispute involving allegations of civil fraud and malicious prosecution. In addition to a heavy caseload of commercial contract and fraud disputes, he regularly acts on company law matters, including shareholder disputes and s.994 petitions, before the English Companies Court. His appellate experience includes matters before the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court (Les Laboratoires Servier & Another v Apotex Inc & Ors).

Harris also has a strong Middle East litigation and arbitration practice, having acted in disputes related to that region for many years. He regularly appears before the DIFC Courts (both Court of First Instance and Court of Appeal) on injunction and commercial cases and is a contributor of several chapters to “DIFC Courts Practice” (2020), endorsed by the DIFC Courts as the official companion to the rules of the DIFC Court.

Harris’ arbitration experience covers significant proceedings under the LCIA, DIFC-LCIA, ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, SCC, LMAA, and WIPO arbitration rules. These have included several disputes under bilateral investment treaties (BITS) and commercial disputes relating to major projects, joint ventures, distribution agreements, technology and AI, and the alleged misuse of intellectual property and confidential information. He is also experienced in court applications to enforce awards and for injunctions in support of arbitration, including freezing and anti-suit injunctions. Harris is editor of Arbitration in England (with chapters on Scotland and Ireland) (2013) and has tutored on international arbitration at post-graduate university level. He also acts as an arbitrator and is a Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) accredited mediator.

Harris is listed as a leading junior in The Legal 500, Chambers UK Bar, Chambers & Partners Global, and Who’s Who Legal, and has previously been nominated for The Legal 500 arbitration junior of the year.
