Joshua Folkard

Joshua Folkard

Call: 2013 (England and Wales); 2020 (British Virgin Islands)

Josh has a broad commercial litigation and arbitration practice, including civil fraud and asset tracing, the enforcement of judgments and awards, insurance and professional negligence.

As a particular specialist in private international law/the conflict of laws, Josh is very familiar with the jurisdiction and governing law rules applicable after the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period. He co-authored the jurisdiction section of COMBAR’s ‘Brexit Emergency Pack’ and has (since January 2021) been instructed in several cases brought against EU Defendants. Josh also has extensive experience in enforcing foreign judgments and arbitral awards, including against States.

Josh has been instructed in arbitrations under a variety of institutional rules, as well as ad hoc insurance arbitration. He also appears regularly (both led and as sole counsel) in court applications relating to the entire ‘lifespan’ of arbitrations, from the appointment of arbitrators under section 18 of the Arbitration Act 1996 to section 67 and 69 challenges to awards. Josh gained significant experience of Indian commercial arbitration from his work as Tribunal Secretary to the Hon’ble Mr Justice Deepak Verma.

Alongside full-time practice, Josh teaches International Commercial Litigation and International Arbitration at University College London. He has published widely on issues of jurisdiction and applicable law, most recently in a festschrift for Lord Sumption.
