This week there was a bevy of big litigation wins worthy of shout outs as runners-up. Let’s get straight to it. 

 A team from Covington & Burling led by partners Craig Pollack and Greg Lascelles, and including London-based lawyers Eddy Eccles, Jonathan Heath and Charlotte Raynor, and Alex Gudko helped win a multi-billion dollar dispute for Ukrainian businessman Oleg Mkrtchan and related corporate entities in the English Commercial Court. The proceedings, pinned at $2 billion in value, involved accusations of wide-ranging fraud against Mkrtchan. After an eight-week trial, the judge dismissed all but a single claim to transfer shares, which the judgment itself noted was likely worthless. Mkrtchan also had representation from David Wolfson QC, Sebastian Isaac and Henry Hoskins, all of One Essex Court, plus Harris Bor of Twenty Essex.
