Nico Leslie is a member of Fountain Court Chambers, London.
He was called to the Bar in 2010 and has since developed a practice involving both national and international disputes. In particular, he has done significant work in Singapore, both in arbitration and before the newly formed Singapore International Civil Court.
Nico’s practice comprises mainly complex financial and civil fraud litigation, having acted in some of the largest UK disputes of recent years, including the Sebastian Holdings, Algosaibi, Gemini and Republic of Djibouti cases. In light of this experience, Nico was recently identified as one of 10 junior ‘Stars at the Bar’ by the UK legal press.
