Steven has been involved extensively in cases involving enforcement of US and other foreign judgments in England and depositions in England for US proceedings, as well as financial and securities litigation, including derivatives.

Steven is one of only three UK lawyers ranked as a leading lawyer for US litigation work by Chambers’ Global Directory 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Chambers Global Directory 2017 lists Steven under USA – Litigation – Foreign Expert Based in UK and states,

“UK-based Steven Loble of W Legal is highly regarded for his cross-jurisdictional litigation work and is frequently called upon by major US companies for advice and assistance. Clients describe him as both the “consummate professional” and “responsive.”’

Steven is also listed under UK – Dispute Resolution – Foreign Expert for USA, and describes him as follows, “Steven Loble of W Legal is active in international disputes, with particular experience acting for US companies.’

“Steven Loble is an experienced litigator in London. He primarily acts for international clients on multi-jurisdictional matters, and his caseload includes significant work for major US entities.”

Recent work includes the following: –

  • Acting for a Fortune 500 Company and obtaining summary judgment in a case in which the judge said, “In my view, the time has come for the claim against ENP to be put out of its misery.”
  • Acting for the Plaintiffs in US litigation and obtaining an order for Christopher Steele, a former MI6 officer, to give evidence in England for use in US proceedings. That case was subsequently described by the English Court as “an exceptional case, involving issues of national security and the safety of intelligence agents and other sources.”
  • Obtaining an order for a foreign exchange trader, whose former employer paid penalties in excess of $100 million to financial regulators in the US, to give evidence in England for claims in the US which had already resulted in settlements with a number of defendants for in excess of $2 billion.
