    David Herbert is an experienced litigator and commercial-Chancery barrister based in the London office of Locke Lord LLP. He focuses his practice on high-stakes, complex international disputes, insolvencies and restructurings – particularly those centred on offshore trusts, structures and investment funds. He works for insolvency practitioners, banks, private and corporate investors, trustees and high & ultra-high net worth individuals. As well as in domestic Courts, David has extensive experience of proceedings in international Courts, and his cases frequently play out against the backdrop of jurisdictional challenges and disputes as well as highly contentious applications for interim relief.

    Recently, he has been instructed in defending an Australian financial services group in $250m conspiracy claims in the Cayman Islands, and in the UK Courts David was engaged for the Claimants in the highly acrimonious and heavily publicised £132m Holyoake v Candy trial, which was prominent in The Lawyer’s Top 20 Cases of 2017.

    David also has a background and interest in art – and has litigated numerous cases involving looted or stolen artefacts or involving disputes over provenance.
