14 January, 2014

Leading legal weekly The Lawyer has unveiled its Hot 100 list for 2014 naming the high-flyers who it believes will help shape the legal profession in the year to come and David Foxton QC of Essex Court Chambers is one of the eleven barristers considered “hot” and listed in the Bar section.

This is what they say:

“For Essex Court’s David Foxton QC, 2013 is certainly a year he will remember. Foxton was counsel to Deutsche Bank in one of the largest and, with costs of £60m, most expensive cases ever heard by the Commercial Court, running for more than four months and resulting in an 800-page judgment from Mr Justice Cooke. Foxton won the $8bn battle, along with a $240m award, against Norwegian company Sebastian Holdings.He also advised Russian tycoon Michael Cherney on his similarly long-running and big-ticket $1bn battle with Oleg Deripaska, and is a regular in The Lawyer’s annual top cases feature. Big money and big cases, it’s all par for the course for Foxton.”
