Speaker Bio

Clive Zietman

Clive is a well-known commercial litigator who has been involved in a wide range of complex high value claims including a number of very high profile fraud, professional negligence and banking disputes often involving an international dimension.

He acted in several well-publicised cases during the 1990s including two aspects of the Maxwell affair. He has been described by Chambers as an “immensely dynamic man who makes things happen” and sources praise his ability to “get into the details of the case” and his “capacity to see the bigger picture”. The Legal 500 describes Clive as “incredibly bright” and an “excellent practitioner” who has “buckets of experience”. He has appeared recently in the Evening Standard publication London’s 1000 Most Influential People. Clive has written widely about fraud and dispute resolution both in the legal and national press and lectures regularly on both subjects.

Over the past few years Clive has been involved in several actions against banks, a task which most Central London law firms are unable to undertake as a result of conflicts of interest. Clive was also selected for inclusion in the 2013 Thomson Reuters’ London Super Lawyers List. The list recognises solicitors who have distinguished themselves in their legal practice and was published in various publications (including in a supplement to both the Telegraph magazine and the Law Society Gazette). It is limited to only 5% of solicitors within London.

Clive also acts as a Supervising Solicitor appointed by the Court in Search Order cases having done so in several high profile cases including the Ferrari secrets case and the Elton John stolen refuse dispute.

His workshops look at raising awareness of commercial fraud and how to educate on fraud prevention. As well as the subject of complaining and how to raise awareness of issues that lead to litigation and to educate the group on litigation avoidance.
