About the Speakers:
Mr. Alexander Milner is recommended in directories as a leading junior in international arbitration.

He has been instructed as counsel in dozens of arbitrations under the ICC, LCIA, SCC and ICSID Rules in London, Paris, Stockholm, Geneva, Zurich, Prague and Vienna, and as an expert. A Russian speaker, he has acted in many substantial cases involving parties from Russia and the CIS region, including most recently two SCC arbitrations concerning the sale and transit of natural gas between Ukraine and Russia where the total amounts in dispute exceeded US$100 billion. He also sits as an arbitrator and has been appointed to tribunals internationally, including in the International Commercial Arbitration Court in Moscow.
Mr. Gaurav Pachnanda is a Senior Advocate, based in New Delhi, whose practice before the Supreme Court of India and other courts and tribunals, is focused mainly on commercial and corporate litigation, including domestic and international arbitrations. He is also a Door Tenant at Fountain Court Chambers, London and Singapore. His international practice includes a wide range of commercial arbitration, litigation and advisory work; with a significant multi-jurisdictional component. Gaurav read law at the University of Jammu and at the University of Oxford, where he was elected a Felix Scholar. Between 2010 to 2014, he was the Senior Additional Advocate General for the State of Jammu and Kashmir, at New Delhi for representing the State before the Supreme Court of India.

She is recognised by the legal directories as a Leading Silk in the fields of Insurance & Reinsurance, Professional Negligence, Product Liability and Administrative & Public Law, and was short-listed for “Insurance Silk of the Year” by Chambers & Partners in 2016. She has advised and acted for the UK Government since 1995 and also held the appointment of First Counsel to the Welsh Government between 2013 and 2016. As a specialist in appellate advocacy, Leigh-Ann has appeared in 5 cases in the Supreme Court and House of Lords (in all of them, successfully) and is currently appearing on an appeal to the Privy Council from Trinidad. In addition to her advocacy and advisory practice, Leigh-Ann also sits part-time as a Deputy High Court Judge, a commercial arbitrator, a Senior Decision-Maker for the Guernsey Financial Services Commission and an adjudicator. She is an accredited mediator.
Mr. Nik Yeo has a commercial practice specialising in complex litigation and arbitration, particularly involving banking, financial regulation (increasingly, in respect of cryptocurrencies), professional negligence, energy/natural resources, insurance and reinsurance. Many of his cases are international in dimension, and at present, he is representing a sovereign wealth fund in a US$5 billion investment management dispute, spanning at least 4 jurisdictions and 8 arbitrations, involving claims of breach of fiduciary duties, conspiracy and tracing. Before joining the Bar, Nik was a transactional solicitor at Slaughter and May, London.
