Damian Taylor is an associate in the dispute resolution department of Slaughter and May. He is the co-author of a student textbook on contract law and maintains a keen interest in this subject in addition to restitution and the conflict of laws, which formed the basis of his BCL master’s degree in European and comparative law at the University of Oxford.
His practice covers a wide range of civil and public law disputes including fraud, insurance, product liability, pensions, judicial review, sports law and general commercial disputes. He was the senior associate on the Slaughter and May dispute resolution team that acted for Liverpool Football Club in the high-profile litigation surrounding the sale of the Premier League club to the owners of the Boston Red Sox and has acted for several other Premier League football clubs. He has continued over the past year to advise commercial and public clients on a broad range of matters including a number of high-value, multi-jurisdiction fraud claims; LCIA, ICC and ICSID arbitrations; and product liability. Damian sits on Slaughter and May’s Africa practice group and Energy Leadership Committee, which develop and direct the firm’s strategy and business development initiatives across Africa and the energy sector respectively.
