Practice Areas

Nathan Pillow KC is a “much-praised” and “highly respected” commercial practitioner “in high demand”. He specialises in advocacy in commercial/chancery disputes both in court and in arbitration, usually involving domestic and offshore (or other international) elements, with a particular focus on civil fraud, asset-tracing, and international banking, finance and trade.

Nathan usually acts as the leader of a team of barristers in complex and high-value cases, having particular experience both of heavy interlocutory applications (such as for worldwide freezing orders or on jurisdictional issues) and long commercial trials, including extensive witness and expert cross-examination. He is praised as “extremely clever” and “a brilliant cross-examiner”; and as an “unflappable” advocate. His work generally has an international character and often involves complex jurisdictional and conflict of laws issues. Nathan’s approach to his cases is “very commercial”, and he is praised for his “efficient” work, which is “always of exceptional quality” and “meticulous”.

Nathan is widely commended for the supportive and responsive manner in which he works with his professional and lay clients, being described as “client-focused”, “generous with his time”, “fantastic to work with”, “super-responsive and attentive”, “very good with clients”, “incredibly user friendly” and a “great team player”—as well as “good value for money”. He is “one of the most user friendly and personable” silks, and he “always appreciates the commercial realities faced by clients”, “has a deep strategic insight” and “instinctively knows how to drive a case to the best possible outcome”.
