Stewarts has three partners listed in the 2021 edition of Who’s Who Commercial Litigation. Fiona Gillett, Alex Jay and Clive Zietman all feature in the latest listings.

All three partners are ‘Recommended’ in the Commercial Litigation category.

Who’s Who says: “WWL: Commercial Litigation provides an in-depth analysis of the foremost litigators around the world who are singled out for their outstanding ability within this contentious context.”

Clive leads the Commercial Litigation team at Stewarts. Over the past few years, he has been involved in several actions against banks, a task that most central London law firms are unable to undertake as a result of conflicts of interest. Clive also acts as a supervising solicitor appointed by the court in search order cases. He has been involved in several high-profile search order cases including the Ferrari secrets case and the Elton John stolen refuse dispute.

Head of Insolvency and Asset Recovery at Stewarts, Alex has experience acting for a wide range of clients, including insolvency practitioners, corporates, individuals, family offices, financial institutions as well as governments and public bodies. Alex has led a number of successful cases on behalf of his clients in a wide variety of sectors, securing the recovery of many millions in the process.

Fiona advises on high-value domestic and international contracts, commercial fraud and tort disputes, with a particular expertise in financial services claims against banks. She is experienced in coordinating proceedings in other jurisdictions, including working with foreign lawyers, investigators and forensic accountants.


All three partners are also featured in the Who’s Who Legal Asset Recovery Guide 2021, alongside Sean Upson and James Price. Alex Jay is also listed as a Global Elite Thought Leader in Asset Recovery.


Who’s Who Legal awards listings to national and international leaders in their fields.
