Partner Sean Jeffrey has doubled his workload, taking on Robert Tchenguiz’ case as well as his brother Vincent’s.
Some at Stephenson Harwood know what it’s like to lose a belter of a case to another firm. The firm lost out to Addleshaw Goddard in 2011, when former BTA Bank chairman Mukhtar Ablyazov asked Addleshaws to defend a multi-billion dollar case being pursued against him.
That case has worked its way to the Supreme Court, where for the first time the justices will examine the standard form freezing injunction.
But for now, all eyes will be on the 50-day fight between Tchenguiz and the SFO, which kicks off in October.
