Runner-up ‘Boutique Firm of the Year – City’. City litigation boutique Candey is increasingly carving out a reputation as one of the UK’s leading disputes-focused firms, thanks partly to its willingness to embrace damages-based contingency fee agreements. As a result, the firm has won instructions to act on a raft of leading cases and arbitrations in the international arena in its core sectors of technology, financial services, international trade and hotel and leisure.
Since April 2013 Candey has been instructed on a series of multi-jurisdictional cases with a combined value in excess of £150m. These include a £50m oil dispute in Iraq; acting for one of China’s largest industrial manufacturers in a £20m dispute with a Brazilian distributor; acting for a technology entrepreneur in relation to a £30m investment capital partnership share scheme dispute; and in collective investment scheme proceedings where the High Court has given permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal. All of these cases involved people based on four continents, underlining Candey’s success at cementing relationships with clients and referrer lawyers worldwide.
Candey is owned through a corporate structure to facilitate tax-efficient reinvestment of profits to fund growth and has no overdraft or bank borrowings.
