Lucas Moore has represented high net worth individuals, funds, banks and corporates in international litigation and arbitration for 15 years. The Legal 500 UK has described Lucas as "an outstandingly bright solicitor, with a ton of litigation experience – he can take the most complex commercial litigation in his stride" (2021), "a first-rate litigator who is intelligent, commercial, pragmatic and also has a real eye for detail" (2020) , "very clever" (2018/19), "calm and collected, and commands the confidence of clients and the respect of opponents" (2017) and "exceptional" (2016). Lucas' practice includes claims arising in financial services, international trade, fraud, contentious insolvency, and corporate governance/shareholder issues.
Lucas is well versed in forum and other jurisdictional matters and regularly advises on the use of injunctive relief (including anti-suit, freezing and search orders together with related contempt applications), governing law and enforcement issues. Lucas' experience also encompasses international requests for judicial assistance in the form of letters of request and otherwise.
Lucas' recent experience (before joining Payne Hicks Beach) includes advising an UHNW individual in international committal and conspiracy claims; BES Finance Ltd (in liquidation) in connection with the Bank of Portugal's resolution of Banco Espirito Santo SA; the liquidators of Weavering Capital (UK) Limited in fraud proceedings; Satyam in substantial fraud claims brought against it in England and the US; expropriated bondholders in connection with the Dutch government's nationalization and bail-in of SNS Reaal NV and SNS Bank NV, two overseas banks in relation to complex mis-selling claims; and a private equity group in claims against its former lenders.
