Christopher R Parker QC
Chris specialises in commercial chancery and business disputes with an emphasis on company law (particularly shareholder disputes and claims for breach of fiduciary duty), fraud, asset recovery, insolvency, professional negligence (recently obtained £10 million from a leading firm of solicitors) and trusts litigation.
A large proportion of Chris' practice has an international flavour. He was called to the BVI Bar in 2006 and regularly appears there. He has also acted in cases in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Dubai (registered with the Dubai International Financial Centre Courts), Hong Kong, Guernsey, Jersey and in the Caribbean Court of Justice.
Chris also appears as an advocate in arbitrations, whether they be ad hoc or under the rules of international bodies (such as LCIA).
Chris is currently recommended as a leading Silk in Legal 500 for Company & Partnership and Insolvency, and in Chambers UK Bar Guide for Offshore and Restructuring/Insolvency.
