Practice Summary

James Petkovic’s practice covers the broad spectrum of company and commercial work in litigation and international arbitration.  That experience extends to work raising issues from a range of international jurisdictions, including (but not limited to) New York, Singapore (where he spent 8 months focused on a variety of domestic litigation and arbitration), Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iran and Malaysia.  James has also gained exposure to financial services regulation, having historically been seconded to the Financial Services Authority (FSA), following which he was engaged in redrafting its handbook upon the division of the FSA into the FCA and the PRA.

Most recently, James acted as part of a large legal team in ad hoc arbitration proceedings claiming significant damages as a result of failure to deliver under a gas supply agreement.

James' practice encompasses both lead work and smaller cases in his own right. He has appeared without a leader successfully in the High Court, County Court and Employment Tribunal.
