Chris Corney


Commercial litigation and family law

Chris has over 20 years experience acting for businesses and individuals resolving disputes, protecting assets and preserving reputations. In that time Chris has become a trusted advisor to many business owners, and from this he has evolved an expertise in family law including financial and children issues. A growing area in recent years has been work to protect businesses from disruption caused by the divorce of one of its owners.

Chris’s clients include listed plcs, owner managed businesses and individuals from a number of sectors including media, logistics, construction and real estate.

Chris deals with a full range of commercial disputes and his work often involves an international element. He has been involved in reported cases pursuing international fraudsters (particularly fraudulent property sales) through the UK courts. His cases have reached the Court of Appeal and the Privy Council on many occasions, but he also uses mediation and quiet persuasion to achieve a fair early resolution wherever possible.

Chris has a keen interest in Russian language and culture, and he is able to read and speak Russian to advanced intermediate level (and rising!). Other hobbies include running around after teenage children and lamenting the decline of Arsenal FC.
