Steven Elliott is recommended by Chambers UK (Commercial Dispute Resolution and Civil Fraud), Legal 500 (Commercial Litigation and Civil Fraud), and by Legal Experts (Fraud).
Steven is noted in Chambers UK 2013 for his “robust, confident advocacy” and for his “analytical strength”. He has been described in previous years as being “a top junior with a razor sharp mind” who “demonstrates a strong creative flair and has the ability to take a case beyond its straightforward parameters”, as well as having “great intellectual strength and a diligent manner” (2012); as having “an outstanding legal mind, Elliott is admired because ‘he has a down-to-earth and responsive nature, and is a pleasure to work with” (2011); “fully committed to his cases” and as having “a fabulous, insightful legal brain, and a wonderfully concise style” (2010); as a “bright, enthusiastic performer with a clear grasp of the law”, and as paying “incredible attention to detail” (2009); and as “one of the Bar’s most promising juniors” and being a “bright, committed team player” whose “forte is large scale commercial claims with a financial twist” (2008).
Steven acts both with and without a leader, before the superior courts as well as before arbitral tribunals. He has particular experience of handling large and complex commercial, financial and fraud matters, often spanning more than one jurisdiction. In recent years Steven has acted or advised in relation to litigation in the British Virgin Islands (where he is called to the Bar), the Cayman Islands, Jersey, Singapore, Mauritius, the Isle of Man, Hong Kong, India, Northern Ireland and Australia.
