Clive Zietman


Clive is a well-known commercial litigator who has been involved in a wide range of complex and high-value claims including a number of high-profile frauds, professional negligence claims and banking disputes. His work regularly involves an international dimension.

Clive leads the Commercial Litigation team at Stewarts. Over the past few years, he has been involved in several actions against banks, a task that most central London law firms are unable to undertake as a result of conflicts of interest.

Clive also acts as a supervising solicitor appointed by the court in search order cases. He has been involved in several high-profile search order cases including the Ferrari secrets case and the Elton John stolen refuse dispute.

Clive has acted in several well-publicised cases, including:

  • Acting for 83 bankers in a case against Commerzbank regarding unpaid bonuses
  • The RBS shareholder litigation concerning the 2008 right issue
  • The high-profile diamond business dispute between Lev Leviev and Arcadi Gaydamak
