David Mohyuddin KC

Call: 1999 (England and Wales); 2023 (BVI) | Silk: 2016

King's Counsel

An ‘excellent strategist’ who is ‘terrifically bright,’ David Mohyuddin specialises in corporate and personal insolvency and commercial litigation, involving business disputes of all types, including contractual and company claims, allegations of fraud and breach of directors’ duties. He is called to the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (BVI).

A ‘silk who gets his hands dirty,’ he is a ‘reassuringly thorough and tenacious advocate’ who is ‘technically excellent’ and ‘very aware of the practical and commercial context of his advice.’ He is popular with clients, being ‘fantastic to work with.’ David likes to be part of a team, recognising clients’ commercial and practical problems and the need to achieve the speedy and cost-effective resolution of their disputes.

He has experience of high profile, significant and long-running litigation, as one of the Silks leading the Secretary of State’s team in the directors disqualification proceedings arising from the failure of Carillion plc. The case was included in The Lawyer’s ‘Top 20 cases for 2023’.

David is just as comfortable in multi-day trials in complex and high-value claims as he is in making urgent applications and advising those already involved in or contemplating litigation.

"Good communicator; client friendly; practical; gets to the core issues quickly; go-to choice for large cases and has never let me down."
