Nicholas Cotter

Nick Cotter has broad experience in commercial and regulatory litigation in a number of courts and arbitrations. This has included claims in the English High Court, Court of Appeal, House of Lords, and the Privy Council, as well as in high courts and appeal courts in the Caribbean. He also has represented clients in numerous international arbitrations, primarily ICC, LCIA, and ad hoc arbitrations (but also those governed by UNCITRAL, LMAA, FOSFA, and GAFTA rules).

These claims have concerned, most notably, breaches of warranty, antitrust issues (including in relation to anticompetitive practices and 'follow on' damages claims), fraud, and regulatory issues in the telecommunications industry. Nick is currently acting for MasterCard in relation to antitrust claims brought against it by various retailers in relation to its interchange fees. He also recently represented Schneider Electric in its claims for breach of warranty in the English High Court following its acquisition of an automation business in the Middle East. [1]
