Steven Loble - Experienced Solicitor - International & Commercial Litigation

Effectively, I am one of the very few lawyers outside the large City firms who have the credibility and track record, to specialise in helping foreign clients deal with the English legal system. Having been a partner in large UK and US law firms, as well as running my own litigation boutique law firm, I know how large and small law firms function and have adopted the best mechanisms to deal with complex cases efficiently and cost-effectively.  Chambers’ Global Directory 2015 ranked me as one of only 2 leading UK based lawyers for US Litigation work. My 30+ years of experience gives me the commercial nous to see ahead and circumvent problems for my clients. Given the nature of my specialism, it will not surprise you that my client list contains major governments, government agencies, banks, large corporates, and some highly influential individuals. One client described me as “an excellent litigator who never loses sight of the business goals of the client. He thinks 'outside the box'.”


Other clients have said, "Steven is a first-class litigator, with particular expertise in the area of transnational evidence-taking (compelling testimony from reluctant foreign witnesses in England for use in US trial).  A sophisticated, careful, aggressive solicitor--our number one choice for complex litigations in London." and a partner in a foreign law firm stated, "One of the brightest commercial lawyers in London. Would recommend instructing Steven without hesitation."

Recent work includes:

• Obtaining evidence in a number of cases brought against banks in the United States for facilitating terrorism by maintaining accounts for terrorist organisations

• Advising a foreign regulator in relation to a case against an English company which is alleged to be in breach of the regulations of the foreign country

• Acting for an investment bank in relation to the Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy

• Acting for a foreign government financial regulator in relation to breaches of that country's laws by wrongdoers in England

• Cross-border credit-crunch related litigation.

• international/political issues such as state immunity
