Malcolm Jarvis

Malcolm Jarvis

Call: 1998

Languages: French (proficient); Dutch (proficient)

Malcolm specialises in commercial and EU law. He acts in commercial disputes arising in a variety of sectors including energy, natural resources, international trade and shipping (including shipbuilding).

He acts as advocate in the High Court (Business and Property Courts) and the appellate courts in England. He also represents clients in commercial arbitrations, including institutional (for example ICC and LCIA) and trade (for example LMAA, GAFTA and FOSFA). He is instructed both as sole advocate and as part of a team.

Malcolm’s practice often involves cross-border disputes. He has considerable specialisation in jurisdictional and conflict of law disputes and in obtaining and opposing interim applications for anti-suit and freezing injunctions. Malcolm is regularly instructed on challenges to arbitration awards in the High Court.

His EU law practice complements his commercial practice (for example under the Commercial Agents Regulations). It covers competition law (including follow-on damages claims), state aid and public procurement.
