Chris Taylor is an experienced commercial litigation solicitor. Before leaving practice, he worked for almost 10 years at Addleshaw Booth & Co (now Addleshaw Goddard) and Eversheds. During that time he presented regular seminars for both lawyers and clients for the national Dispute Resolution team.
He acted for major corporate clients in a wide range of commercial and company disputes. As well as claims for breach of commercial contracts, his practice covered warranty claims under share and asset sale agreements, shareholder disputes, product liability and product recalls, professional negligence actions against accountants and solicitors and public procurement claims.
He teaches on CPD Training’s structured litigation training courses and has been retained by City and national firms to design and deliver bespoke courses on technical litigation subjects such as warranty claims, shareholder disputes, cross border litigation and interim injunctions.
Chris Taylor also works as a consultant to Practical Law Company, providing training to commercial and corporate lawyers on contract law, terms and conditions of sale and remedies, and has taught on the College of Law’s trainee litigation programme.
He has a particular interest in legal privilege and conflict of laws issues. He is the co-author of the English law chapter of Privilege and Confidentiality: An International Handbook, published by the International Bar Association, and contributes to The Litigation Practice, a loose leaf work published by Sweet & Maxwell, on the subject of the enforcement of foreign judgments.
