Oscar has drafted freezing injunctions, an application to set aside English bankruptcy proceedings pending international proceedings, and an application for recognition of an international judgment.
Oscar has been exposed to and assisted on a range of cases involving international organisations law, having provided research with regards to Multilateral Development Bank Sanctions Procedures, the Caribbean Development Bank and other international organisations. Oscar is familiar with the EU Blocking Regulation on sanctions.
