Chambers and Legal 500 ranked leading law firm, Blaser Mills Law, has expanded its dispute resolution offering with the appointment of experienced commercial litigator, Nick Scott, as partner.

Nick specialises in complex, high value commercial disputes, for a wide variety of international and domestic clients and has extensive expertise in disputes relating to financial services, natural resources (oil and gas and mining), tax, shareholder and partnership issues and intellectual property (including data protection). His experience extends to both high court litigation and international arbitration.

A leading and respected practitioner in his field. Nick has been appointed to broaden Blaser Mills Law’s commercial dispute resolution practice. He was recommended in the UK Legal 500 as “outstanding” with “tremendous knowledge and experience…always available, and respond[ing] to challenges in a calm, decisive and unphased manner”. He was also a key member of the Defence team awarded “Dispute Resolution Team of the Year” at the 2014 Legal Business Awards and “Litigation Team of the Year” at the 2014 Lawyer Awards.

Nick will be based at the firm’s London office on Cheapside, working as part of a 12 strong team committed to delivering the expertise of larger city law firms, but with a personalised, value-driven approach.

Alka Kharbanda, partner and head of dispute resolution at Blaser Mills Law, said: “Nick’s extensive experience both nationally and internationally is a welcome addition to our team.

“The last year has been a challenge for businesses which has led to an increase in commercial disputes. Nick will play an important role in supporting our clients through the continued uncertainty.

“In addition, as clients become increasingly global with their network, international arbitration is an area of growth and Nick’s knowledge of international disputes will enable us to provide specialist advice.”
