Richard Kovalevsky KC

Spear's Review

'My individual clients all have one thing in common,’ explains Richard Kovalevsky KC, now a partner at Mayfair litigation firm Cohen & Gresser, having recently joined from Stewarts. ‘They seek expert tactical and legal advice to assist them in preventing or dealing with difficult problems.’

What’s noteworthy is the wide range of cases that come across Kovalevsky’s desk – from cases involving business, finance, stock market dealings, listings and announcements, to corruption, tax, fraud and money laundering. His client base is similarly varied, and includes captains of industry, HNWs and oligarchs.

Individual clients’ problems have ranged from allegations of misleading the stock exchange (Sir David Jones) to designing tax schemes that are challenged criminally by HMRC (Martin King, firector of tech unicorn Ve Interactive), Kovalevsky explains, adding that: ‘They include Swiss fiduciaries, entrepreneurs, members of prominent families and politicians.'
