Andrew Latimer has an extensive commercial litigation and chancery practice and in the last three years he has appeared in the Chancery Division and defeated claims for passing off, misuse of confidential information and economic torts and has also succeeded on an unfair prejudice petition.
Latimer has appeared in the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal in a case concerning the recovery of more than £600,000 worth of service charges; the Queen’s Bench Division and defeated a £250,000 claim arising from a disputed oral agreement for the sale of a business; and the Technology and Construction Court defending a claim for £1.6m for faulty industrial equipment.
During 2010–12, he was led by Lesley Anderson QC in a minority shareholders’ petition, which settled after eight weeks of trial.
