  • Anonymous | 3-Sep-2012 10:25 am: I imagine that some comments derive from the fact that certain members of this (in fact extremely talented and personable) litigation team have been walking around the City as if they own the square mile just because they are on first name terms with an oligarch.

  • These are the questions I would really like to know the answers to:
    1. Did Mr Abramovic unreasonably refuse to mediate and if so will be penalised in costs?
    2. Who are the ATE insurers and will they refuse cover on the grounds of Gloster J's comments on Mr Berezovsky's honesty?
    3. If there was a discounted fee arrangement between AG and Mr Berezovsky; (a) what was the lower level charging rate?; (b) is there an obligation on Mr Berezovsky to be honest entitling AG to claim its usual fee in default?
    4. Are AG very keen to tell the market what the true position is, but prohibited from doing so through obligations of confidentiality to Mr Berezhovsky?

  • What was Order in relation to costs??? Party/party costs.
    I suggest both of them to review legal costs paid to their lawyers, they must have contemporaneous file notes etc to prove such fees, I think it could be reduced by 50%

  • Given the findings of fact against Beresovsky I wonder if the ATE U/Ws will mainatin cover?
