Private international law

Members of Doughty Street International have significant expertise in complex domestic cases involving private international law and conflict of laws issues. For instance, we have assisted in major litigation relating to issues such as toxic dumping in the Ivory Coast (Motto & Ors v Trafigura), complicity in the torture of environmental protestors in Peru (Guerrero v Montericco), oil spills in Nigeria (Bodo Community v Shell) and the involvement of the United Kingdom in illegal rendition (Belhaj v Jack Straw & Ors). Doughty Street International team members have also acted in high-profile damages claims against the UK government relating to the abuse of detainees held in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay.
