Gherson’s eponymous founding partner is undoubtedly a leading figure in this area, with specialisms in immigration tribunals, High Court judicial reviews and cases at the European Court of Human Rights. Commercial, property, tax and litigation law are also notable strengths. He recently represented Ukrainian businessman Yuriy Ivanyushchenko, successfully removing the client from the Council of the EU’s sanctions list. The firm was founded in 1988, and swiftly accumulated a large Asian clientele post-Tiananmen Square; during that time, Roger Gherson helped many HNWs to emigrate from Hong Kong before the handover to China in 1997. In the 1990s, he welcomed a noteworthy influx of Russian clients.
