Giles’ practice encompasses a wide range of commercial and chancery disputes, both led and unled, as well as both on-shore and off-shore (especially in the Channel Isles and the Caribbean).  He also acts in high value financial remedy actions in the Family Division. Much of his work has an international dimension and he is both used to and enjoys working as part of a team with solicitors and others.
