My name is Robert Harvey.  I am a solicitor who has been practising in commercial dispute resolution in London since 1997.

I was a partner in a Top 20 city law firm, but since 2014, I have chosen to work for my clients using a different business model.  It allows me to continue to provide services at the same high standards that my clients expect from  a city-based solicitor, but with additional flexibility.

I now have the freedom to represent clients who will be turned away by traditional city practices because of commercial conflicts of interest with the institutions that those firms tend to represent.  I can offer either traditional fee arrangements or, in suitable cases, alternative fee arrangements (such as conditional fee agreements and damages based agreements).

I provide advice to my clients to allow them to avoid and cost-effectively manage commercial disputes that arise in the course of their businesses, whatever the industry and whatever the value of the dispute.  I have advised clients in the technology, media, entertainment and telecommunications sectors, in banking and finance, in biotechnology, shipping, art, the automotive industry and in construction.

I specialise in civil claims for fraud and business or “white collar” crime, including the following areas:

  • making or defending claims in the civil courts for conspiracy to defraud or misrepresentation
  • freezing orders, search orders and Anton Pillar orders
  • shareholder disputes
  • secret profit and breach of fiduciary duty
  • banking and financial litigation, including complaints to the Financial Ombudsman Service
  • money laundering investigations, including judicial review of unlawful search and seizure orders
  • FCA investigations
  • Bribery Act investigations

By drawing on my considerable experience, I am able to produce a result that exceeds my client’s expectations and deliver real value for my clients.

I am always prepared to have a telephone discussion or respond to emails to identify whether I can help, so please do not hesitate to contact me using the contacts page.
