James Brocklebank’s practice is primarily concentrated in the areas of professional negligence, insurance and reinsurance, and commercial arbitration (often with an international element).
However, his experience extends to all areas of commercial litigation, including in particular sale of goods, banking and finance, conflict of laws, international trade, commercial fraud, commercial agency, injunctions, and confidentiality and privilege. Brocklebank has wide experience of advising and acting in relation to all manner of contractual and tortious disputes.
In the professional negligence context, he has acted in cases involving a range of professionals, including accountants, tax consultants, insurance brokers, Lloyd’s members’ agents, bankers, company directors and solicitors. Much of Brocklebank’s work in this area, and in the field of insurance and reinsurance, has been concerned with the financial services sector. His clients include three of the ‘big four’ accountancy firms and several prominent banks and financial institutions.
Arbitration is a significant element of Brocklebank’s practice, including regular involvement in substantial international commercial litigation. He has also appeared on behalf of clients in a number of professional disciplinary tribunals. In addition, Brocklebank regularly advises and acts in cases with an international flavour, often involving conflicts of laws issues and matters of international commerce.
