Louise Hutton Named in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 2019

29 January, 2019

Louise Hutton has been identified by The Lawyer as one of its “Hot 100”, in the list released today. The annual Hot 100 list recognises the best lawyers in the UK from in-house, private practice and the Bar.

Singled out for her presence in the banking and finance, fraud and insolvency markets, she is also recognised for her expertise in contentious trust matters and as having “made a name for herself with her successful involvement in the long-running and various Lehman Waterfall litigations.”

The Lawyer’s article says of Louise, “She was led by David Foxton QC on the Maroil fraud case, which included a disputed freezing order and settled in the summer of 2017. Her current instructions include the high-profile arbitration over PrivatBank’s bonds brought by Madison Pacific, in which she is instructed with Vernon Flynn QC by Adam Silver at Dechert, and the Gaiduk v Taruta fraud claim, listed for an eight-week trial in the Commercial Court in the autumn. With a basket of contentious trust cases also on the go, an area that meshes well with civil fraud, Hutton’s 2019 looks set to be anything but quiet.”

Louise joined Essex Court Chambers from Maitland Chambers in May 2018, where her practice has “gone on to another level” having gained “more exposure to top-level banking, insolvency and civil fraud matters.”
