Fladgate litigator adds to Kobre’s Brit pack

Fladgate litigator Simon Cullingworth has joined the London office of US trial lawyers Kobre & Kim.

The move comes shortly after the firm brought in Serle Court silk James ­Corbett QC. Both hires are part of the firm’s plans to have five English-qualified lawyers working in London by the autumn.

Cullingworth will work alongside US-qualified ­partner Michael Kim, who splits his time between ­London and New York, and partner Robert Henoch.

Cullingworth specialises in litigation in the High Court and Court of Appeal, as well as international ­arbitration and litigation matters.

He works on litigation for foreign companies based in the UK, particularly in the banking, securities, commodities and futures sectors, as well as undertaking ­internal investigations for corporates.

Kobre opened its London office last summer.
