Roger Laville


Roger is an experienced commercial chancery advocate specialising in finance disputes, encompassing:

  • debt finance, including banking and insolvency; and
  • equity finance, including shareholder disputes and claims involving breach of directors’ duties.

Fraud and dishonesty are a regular feature of Roger’s cases, often necessitating freezing orders and other injunctive relief, and many involve cross-border inter-jurisdictional issues.

Before being called to the Bar in 2015, Roger was a partner in a firm of solicitors. His experience as a solicitor means that he knows the importance of giving clients clear pragmatic advice that enables them to take properly informed decisions, and of being easy to contact and ready to talk through problems informally. He especially relishes cases that throw up seemingly intractable problems, or that require imaginative analysis to identify a solution.
