Blockbuster cases from around the world set to hit the English courts in 2015

The English courts have been the centre for global litigation for some time – but far from decreasing, the international nature of disputes coming to London is merely accelerating.

This year’s selection of the top 20 cases to hit the High Court this year is one of the most international ever. While Russia, so long a source of multi-million pound cases, continues to feature, the top 20 for 2015 includes disputes from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

But with half of the top 20 cases of 2014 having settled before trial, it is looking entirely possible that many of those appearances will not take place.
