Clive Zietman

Stewarts Law LLP

London, GBR


Clive is a well-known commercial litigator who has been involved in a wide range of complex and high-value claims including a number of high-profile frauds, professional negligence claims and banking disputes. His work regularly involves an international dimension.

Expertise
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.

Recognition
Chambers describes Clive as “a great lawyer who’s very good at understanding the case and bringing it forward to court in a clear manner”, and “a well-known practitioner” who “has immense experience” and “amazing energy”. It also notes that he has a “brilliant reputation in the market”, and is “fantastic with clients”.

The Legal 500
notes that Clive “obtains first-class results” and is “an excellent strategist”.

Experience
Clive has acted in several well-publicised cases, including:
• Acting for 83 bankers in a case against Commerzbank regarding unpaid bonuses
• The RBS shareholder litigation concerning the 2008 right issue
• The high-profile diamond business dispute between Lev Leviev and Arcadi Gaydamak

Career
On qualification in 1985, Clive joined Herbert Smith where he worked for many years as an assistant. He set up his own firm in 1994, which grew to become a 13-partner firm seven years later. Clive was Head of Commercial Litigation at Manches from 2004 until 2009, when he joined Stewarts.
