Multiple news sources have reported the latest legal proceedings brought against Shell in London on behalf of Nigerian communities. 

Parties pursuing litigation against Shell are frequently in contact with me seeking advice, inside information and internal evidence. I am always grateful in this regard for invaluable input from Shell insider sources, some of whom have provided information to me for over a decade. 

With regards to the latest litigation, suffice it to say that I was pleased to provide extensive assistance on a confidential basis to Leigh Day, the London law firm acting for their Nigerian clients.
