Harris Bor

Harris Bor

Call: 2006; 2002 (Solicitor, England and Wales)

Harris’s practice covers all areas of international arbitration and commercial and company litigation, with a particular emphasis on corporate, joint venture, and fraud disputes (including s994 petitions). He appears routinely on his own and as part of a team in the English High Court, the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts and before international arbitration tribunals. His appellate experience includes matters before the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

Harris also has a strong Middle East litigation and arbitration practice, having acted in disputes related to that region for many years. He regularly appears before the DIFC Courts (both Court of First Instance and Court of Appeal) on injunction and commercial cases and is a contributor of several chapters to “DIFC Courts Practice” (2020), endorsed by the DIFC Courts as the official companion to the rules of the DIFC Court. He has also appeared before the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) Court.

Harris’ arbitration experience covers significant proceedings under the LCIA, ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, SCC, LMAA, and WIPO arbitration rules. These have included several disputes under bilateral investment treaties (BITS) and commercial disputes relating to major projects, joint ventures, distribution agreements, technology and AI, and the alleged misuse of intellectual property and confidential information. He is also experienced in court applications to enforce awards and for injunctions in support of arbitration, including freezing and anti-suit injunctions. Harris is editor of Arbitration in England (with chapters on Scotland and Ireland) (2013) and has tutored on international arbitration at post- graduate university level.

Harris also acts as an arbitrator (sole and joint) and is a Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) accredited mediator. His recent appointments as arbitrator include on a middle east construction dispute and UK franchise dispute.

Harris is listed as a leading junior in The Legal 500, Chambers UK Bar, Chambers & Partners Global, and Who’s Who Legal, and has previously been nominated for The Legal 500 arbitration junior of the year.
