Irwin Mitchell in London boosts commercial disputes and arbitration offering
Irwin Mitchell has recruited commercial litigation and arbitration partner David Vaughan into its London office as its investment in expanding its corporate and institutions team continues.
David joins from Collyer Bristow. Before this he was head of litigation and office at Shakespeare Martineau, London. He has a strong focus on complex and high-value disputes with a multi-jurisdictional element.
David, who is also a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CiArb), advises on a wide variety of claims for banks, corporates, financial services providers, high-net worth individuals, and sovereign states.
He speaks four languages fluently and will also be supporting growth within Irwin Mitchell’s international team which is led by partner Bryan Bletso.
Fergal Dowling, director of Legal Services (Commercial Advisory & Disputes), said: “We are delighted that David has joined us. He is a superb litigator with an impressive track record and his international expertise means that he is ideally placed to provide strategic solutions to international clients and support our growth plans in that area.”
David added: “Irwin Mitchell has a well-deserved reputation as a litigation powerhouse that offers a unique combination of outstanding client service and innovation, particularly, relating to the use of innovative pricing and funding structures. Irwin Mitchell’s ambitious growth plans for its international and disputes work suit my practice in terms of both breadth and international reach. I am thrilled to be joining the firm.”
Irwin Mitchell has continued to invest heavily in its team focused on the corporate and institutions audience. Earlier this year it announced the arrival of banking partner Jeremy Ladyman who was soon followed by the arrival of two corporate tax partners, Jennie Newton and Kate Featherstone. Construction partner, Robert Tunningley, has also joined the form recently.
