Charles Enderby Smith regularly advises clients on matters of public international law, including issues faced as a result of the imposition of international sanctions. He also has a broad practice spanning a wide range of international and commercial disputes.

Charlie is the lead associate on applications before the European General Court to annul financial sanctions imposed on the former President of Egypt and members of his family, and was the lead associate on the family’s appeals to the European Court of Justice resulting in the successful annulment in December 2020 of previously imposed sanctions.

He was the lead associate on an action against the Conservative Party in relation to the rights of one of its members to be appointed as an MEP, a dispute that encompassed claims for breach of contract as well as principles of judicial review and wider election law.
