Damian Taylor is a partner 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. Damian sits on Slaughter and May’s Africa practice group and energy law group, which develop and direct the firm’s strategy and business development initiatives across Africa and the energy sector respectively.
The Dispute Resolution Review provides an indispensable overview of the civil court systems of 28 jurisdictions. It offers a guide to those who are faced with disputes that frequently cross international boundaries. As is often the way in law, difficult and complex problems can be solved in a number of ways, and this edition demonstrates that there are many different ways to organise and operate a legal system successfully, as well as overcoming challenges that life and politics throw up along the way.
