Practice overview

Recognised as a leader at the Bar in all of his areas of practice, Stuart Isaacs KC is conspicuous for his exceptional legal and technical knowledge and abilities.

Stuart has an established reputation as a barrister specialising in international commercial arbitration and litigation, with a particular focus on London and Asia. He was the first London KC to be authorised to practise as a foreign lawyer in Singapore. Stuart advises and represents clients in court and arbitration proceedings worldwide. He sits regularly as an arbitrator and is a Deputy Judge of the High Court of England and Wales.

With an almost exclusively international focus, his practice covers the range of heavy commercial disputes. Stuart is highly experienced in international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration, both as counsel acting for the parties and as a much in-demand arbitrator.

Stuart has also given expert evidence on English commercial law issues in courts and arbitration tribunals in a number of overseas jurisdictions. These have included courts and tribunals in New York, Singapore, Italy and Israel, in the form of both written opinions and oral evidence.

Commercial disputes

Stuart has experience of all types of banking and financial disputes, civil fraud cases, commercial contracts, corporate disputes, competition matters, disputes in the energy and natural resources sectors, insurance and reinsurance, professional negligence and insolvency. A particular interest lies in jurisdictional and private international law issues and enforcement issues including freezing orders and anti-suit injunctions.

Disputes over lending, securities, letters of credit and bills of exchange; civil fraud claims, particularly those involving Eastern European and Indian parties; joint venture and shareholder disputes, competition matters; oil and gas disputes and disputes in the mining sector, particularly involving coal and shale and precious metals and gemstones; coverage and avoidance issues in the marine and non-marine insurance and reinsurance sectors; shipbuilding, charterparties and bills of lading, and accountants’, solicitors’ and brokers’ negligence have all been part of his work.

He has also been involved in several commercial judicial review cases mainly involving regulatory issues.

His cases have arisen not only in London and Singapore, but in other jurisdictions, notably Bermuda, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Mauritius and in the Caribbean.

Stuart has appeared in over 20 cases in the Court of Justice of the European Union and General Court in Luxembourg, as well as many cases in the English domestic courts involving European law issues. His landmark cases include those relating to the issue of Sunday trading, the ban on the export of British beef following the BSE crisis some years ago and the imposition of sanctions on Serbia.

He has access to an experienced team of competition law economists and other experts.

Stuart has acted as counsel both in England and in other common law jurisdictions in hundreds of court cases, of which the following illustrate the depth and range of his experience:

  • Elandia Holdings Ltd v Cortefill Invest Ltd concerning a Part 8 claim seeking the proper interpretation of a shareholders’ agreement governed by English law in respect of a joint venture company which is the subject of winding-up petition in Cyprus.

  • Stati and others v Republic of Kazakhstan (2018) concerning whether allegations that a foreign arbitration award had been obtained by fraud, raised on an application to set aside an order permitting enforcement in England, amounted to an independent claim that survived the service of a notice discontinuing the enforcement proceedings.
  • Elena Baturina v Alexander Chistyakov [2017] EWHC 1049 (Comm) relating to the successful defence of a Russian investor against claims for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud relating to a joint property development with the claimant in Morocco.

  • Monde Petroleum SA v Westernzagros Ltd [2015] EWHC 67 (Comm) concerning whether an arbitration clause in a consultancy services agreement was superseded by a jurisdiction clause in a subsequent settlement agreement.

International arbitration

In addition to his counsel role, Stuart is much in demand as an arbitrator in international commercial disputes and investment treaty disputes. He has conducted hundreds of arbitrations and is regularly appointed as presiding, sole or co-arbitrator by parties and by the leading arbitral institutions.

He features in The Legal 500’s International Arbitration Powerlist UK and is ranked in both Chambers Asia-Pacific and Chambers Singapore as a ‘most in demand arbitrator’.

He conducts commercial arbitrations under the arbitration rules of the ICC, LCIA, SIAC, HKIAC, CIETAC and KCAB and under UNCITRAL Rules amongst others, as well as in ad hoc arbitrations. He has also been involved in several ICSID disputes under bilateral investment treaties and many ad hoc arbitrations in a variety of fields.

He has determined disputes under a variety of systems of law, including not only English law but also the laws of Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Mauritius, New York, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa and Switzerland.

Swift resolution of disputes is his forte. He strives to deal with pre-hearing matters, hearings and the production of awards speedily and efficiently, making himself constantly available to the parties. Often, he is willing to travel at short notice in order to reduce the parties’ own costs. He has been described as a ‘most efficient manager’ of proceedings who ‘exercises considerable judgment’.

He is a Fellow of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (ACICA) and of the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators. He is also a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators, one of the City of London’s Modern Livery Companies.
