Suber Akther

Senior Litigation Lawyer, Siemens

Suber is a solicitor-advocate and head of litigation for Siemens plc (in the UK). Suber joined Siemens in 2005 and manages its disputes across the board which, given Siemens’ diverse operations, means a wide variety of subject matters, including: construction, finance (for Siemens Financial Services), product liability, energy, rail and general commercial disputes. The forum for the disputes span English courts, arbitration, adjudication and other ADR. Suber conducts his own trials and often works on a direct access basis with senior counsel, as well as managing external law firms.

Suber was the lead lawyer and instrumental in the widely commented and ground-breaking case of Eurocom v Siemens  where Siemens established prima facie fraudulent misrepresentation on the part of the opponent’s advisors in the nomination and appointment of an adjudicator.
