Marc co-founded Keidan Harrison LLP in May 2020. He is recognised by the leading legal directories as one of the UK’s top disputes lawyers. Chambers & Partners has described him as “a great strategist”, and The Legal 500 has said he is “a no-nonsense lawyer who gets results for his clients’ and has a ‘willingness to get stuck into difficult fights”. He is ranked as a leading practitioner in both directories.
He advises on high value company, commercial and financial litigation and international arbitration across a range of industry sectors, including for example financial and professional, IT/tech, commercial property, manufacturing, mining and commodities. His expertise includes commercial agency and joint venture disputes, civil fraud and asset tracing cases, as well as partnership/LLP, shareholder, director and company issues and disputes (including unfair prejudice petitions and derivative actions). He is experienced in bringing and defending claims for interim relief, including worldwide asset freezing injunctions.
He undertakes professional negligence actions, acting predominantly against investment managers, construction professionals, and law and accountancy firms. He also advises on substantial corporate insolvency (in relation to winding up petitions, cases involving officers of the company and third parties, including alleged claims of misfeasance or fraud) and contentious insolvency matters. Much of Marc’s work has an international dimension and he has undertaken extensive work with EU, US, CIS and, more recently, India and Africa dimensions, as well as cases connected to offshore centres.
