Ben Lasserson will be a Partner of our practice in London, which we expect to launch in September 2018.  Prior to joining Strange & Butler LLP, he led the Competition Litigation practice at the international law firm Pinsent Masons LLP.

Recognized as a "future major player" by Legal 500 (2015), Ben specializes in antitrust litigation, commercial litigation, arbitration and other dispute resolution procedures, and has a wealth of experience acting for major multinational businesses across a broad range of industries.

Notable experience includes:

  • Acting for a number of multinationals across a range of sectors in respect of damages actions arising from the European Commission's Trucks cartel decision;
  • Advising the administrators of certain UK high street retailers in respect of damages actions in the financial services sector;
  • Acting for a major international airline in relation to the multi-jurisdictional antitrust investigation into air cargo surcharges;
  • Acting for a major European investment bank in connection with disputes arising under certain structured finance products involving proceedings in London and New York in excess of US$1 billion;
  • Acting for AAR (Alfa-Access-Renova) in its dispute with BP over the oil major's attempt to form a US$16 billion strategic alliance with Rosneft for the exploration of oil in the Arctic Circle; and
  • Acting for a high net worth individual against multiple defendants in relation to email hacking (obtaining multiple third party disclosure orders and search and seizure orders to secure evidence).

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Ben was a professional solo cellist, chamber musician and teacher.

July 2018: Our London practice will be through a limited liability partnership, Strange & Butler UK LLP, registered in England & Wales, which is in the process of seeking authorisation from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”) to operate as a solicitor’s firm - any developments will be posted on this site in due course. In the meantime, and for the avoidance of doubt, nothing appearing on this website shall be interpreted as stating or implying that either Strange & Butler LLP or Strange & Butler UK LLP are currently authorised by the SRA
