2021 has been a busy and exciting year for Fountain Court. Despite the challenges associated with the global pandemic continuing throughout the year, we have been lucky enough to experience some positive moments.

Once again, many of our members and staff have gained prestigious awards, rankings and appointments. We also worked on a number of high-profile cases including the FCA Business Interruption Test Case, Stanford v HSBC, the SKAT litigation, Harcus Sinclair v Your Lawyers, CPS v Aquila and many others.

We welcomed four new tenants following successful completion of their pupillages and we were joined by a number of lateral recruits, namely the highly regarded arbitration practitioner Matthew Gearing QC who joined from Allen & Overy; experienced commercial crime lawyer Robin Lööf who joined from Debevoise & Plimpton; commercial barrister Laurie Brock who joined from Maitland Chambers; and door tenant Zal Andhyarujina SA who is based in Mumbai.

This review looks at the commentary and thought leadership we produced in 2021, together with some of our news stories and significant cases.

We wish all of our colleagues and clients a very happy and healthy festive period and look forward to continuing to work with you in 2022.
