Major solicitors' firms both at home and abroad instruct it in matters of great moment.”

3VB is recognised as a premier commercial set, with members of Chambers appearing in the leading commercial cases with a banking or financial markets element – for example, VTB Capital v. Nutritek and Plevin v Paragon Finance in the Supreme Court; the $8bn DB v SHI prime broking battle which continues in the Court of Appeal; the RBS Rights Issue litigation, involving seven members of Chambers; TerrFirma v Citigroup; the continuing Italian derivatives cases in the Court of Appeal, Dexia v Piedmont; and the recent and continuing ratings agencies litigation. 

3VB’s commercial practice extends well beyond these core areas – as demonstrated, for example, by our members’ participation in the £2.5bn Vincent Tchenguiz v Grant Thornton conspiracy claim relating to the SFO investigation into the Tchenguiz brothers; the Kazakhstan v Zhunus fraud litigation; the high-profile Judicial Review brought by Russian oil and gas giant Rosneft relating to the EU sanctions following Russia’s actions in Ukraine; and cases in the Court of Appeal determining key points of law, such as Lawlor v Sandvik Mining & Construction.

Our barristers are frequent nominees and recipients of awards from the legal directories and media, which serves to highlight our position at the top of the rankings for commercial law.
