36 Commercial Is delighted to welcome Jeffrey Bacon
Called to the Bar in 1989, Jeffrey’s principal areas of practice concern business disputes between the owners of businesses (shareholder, partnership, and joint venture cases) and disputes between a business and its directors, shareholders, joint ventures, franchisees and employees, as well as acting for and against office holders in insolvency and similar procedures. Cases involving breaches of fiduciary or other duties and commercial fraud are common features of his practice.
Jeffrey is frequently instructed in relation to injunctions, having acted in many significant cases involving confidential information, team moves, freezing and search orders, insolvency cases and claims by the National Crime Agency. Clients are extremely comfortable with his style and approach, and solicitors regularly comment on the strength of the rapport, which he achieves with clients.
Jeffrey regularly advises on disputes and regulatory issues involving professionals and other regulated persons (professional negligence, internal disciplinary proceedings, external regulatory matters in relation to the professions e.g. solicitors, accountants, surveyors) and also financial services in which he has been instructed by the business, by an individual or where he has sat on or acted as adviser to a disciplinary panel.
Jeffery is recognised as a tough and fearless advocate, who is at home in all forums. He regularly appears in the Companies and Business and Insolvency Divisions of the High Court, and has appeared in the first instance and Appeal Court in the DIFC in Dubai, at Sports Resolutions, the GMC and Employment Tribunals.
Jeffrey also has a wealth of experience in workplace disputes, in particular whistleblowing, discrimination, bullying and the gamut of professional negligence fields.
