Robin Hollington QC’s CPDcasts

Robin is an official CPDcast contributor and contributes to the following podcasts:



"...highly persuasive and very quick on his feet" (Chambers & Partners 2011)

Robin’s practice has encompassed virtually all aspects of contentious work in the Chancery Division, with a particular emphasis on company law and insolvency (both corporate and individual). He has developed a particular specialisation in claims involving complaints of oppression of minority shareholders and is the author of the leading textbook in this field Shareholders' Rights published by Sweet & Maxwell. He has substantial experience of mediation, usually as an advocate although also as an accredited mediator.

He has appeared in many recent heavy and complex court cases in the field of shareholders’ disputes and has represented parties in many foreign jurisdictions, including Gibraltar, the B.V.I., Cayman Islands, and Hong Kong. He has also acted as an expert witness on UK law in litigation in New York (2003, corporate receivership) and California (2005-2006, bankruptcy).

He also has some experience of criminal and human rights law. As Junior Counsel, he was instructed by the Serious Fraud Office to advise and appear on Chancery issues in the Barlow Clowes’ appeal to the Court of Criminal Appeal, and to advise in the several Maxwell prosecutions. He represented the claimants in their successful claim to the European Court of Human Rights (Mitchell v. UK, December 2002), establishing breaches of Article 6 of the Convention (Right to a Fair Trial) on the basis of excessive delay in the English legal process.
