PROELIUM LAW LLP

The UK’s foremost legal authority on high-risk jurisdictions and specialist risk services.

PROELIUM LAW LLP

Internationally focused legal advice and support centred on high-risk and complex jurisdictions.  Proelium’s central values are Integrity and Empathy with clients.  

OVERVIEW

War Zones, complex environments, high-risk jurisdictions – these are all problematic spaces in which to work or conduct business, no matter the sector.  Acting as a business, or as an individual, problems can be myriad and are frequently unforeseen until it is too late, the deal has fallen through, the money has been lost or situations have manifest that are tough to negotiate away from.

Our solution to these very real commercial problems is to create a scarce blend, combining the Partners’ 5 decades of experience gained whilst working in conflict zones and deep in the heart of the specialist defence and security worlds, with professional legal-expertise to bring to you a totally unique law firm, Proelium Law LLP. 

The markets we particularly offer our services to are the defence, security and international development sectors and the political-risk area of the insurance market.  We offer personal legal advice to individuals with ‘niche’ skills from the Intelligence and Special Forces areas.

There is limited competition in this area. Currently the only law firms offering advice to people wanting to function in the high-risk space tend to be large and expensive law firms who lack subject expertise. Proelium Law LLP is small, lean and our experience and qualifications make us uniquely well equipped to understand those issues.

Our team may be small but is vastly experienced. The Partners are an internationally recognised legal expert in the fields of high-risk jurisdictions and a proven defence and security authority, coming from a long career at the front edge of UK conventional and special operations.  The firm can boast over 130 years of ground experience in complex environments and are confident when they state that there is no other legal organisations in the UK today with comparable experience or qualifications.

Our future sees more growth and an expansion into Dubai. It also sees a period of programmed consolidation, to ensure that our client focus is not compromised.

Reports are researched and compiled using a combination of legal insight with international intelligence- gathering expertise and geo-political understanding

Proelium Law LLP is a small and lean operation, allowing overheads to be kept to a minimum with the resultant savings being passed on to clients

The core of our team are acknowledged world leaders in their respective areas of law and discreet international investigations; a small and lean operation, allowing overheads to be kept to a minimum with the resultant savings being passed on to clients

Camera Technology – PART 2

The key to the Thermal Imaging (TI) sensor (a camera and a lens assembly) will be the quality of the image. If the image quality is poor and unreliable, then user confidence will ebb very quickly, and the system will fail. The imaging device, the TI Camera (TIC), is required to provide Detection, Recognition, and Identification (DRI). DRI is the most critical performance criteria of a TIC in any role.

Analysis of Russia’s alleged Taliban support

In a statement before the Senate Armed Services Committee on February 9th this year General John W. Nicholson, the commander of Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan, testified that Russia was supporting the Taliban, having “become more assertive over the past year, overtly lending legitimacy to the Taliban to undermine NATO efforts and bolster belligerents using the false narrative that only the Taliban are fighting ISIL-K.”

The following is intended as an aid to business travellers, to better understand and identify possible risks and expected behaviour before and during any overseas journey. It may not be relevant to all locations, but awareness is always advisable.

Long Range Electro Optical (EO) Surveillance – Part 1

The definition of Long Range EO Surveillance varies considerably depending on the particular application. The purpose of this document is to define what is meant by EO surveillance and then to determine different degrees of Long Range EO surveillance arbitrarily. The text then discusses the various techniques and technologies available to meet the requirement.

Business Travel – Part 1

As a business traveller having your travel procedures down to a science can help make journeys more pleasurable. After all, jet-setting is supposed to be comfortable and fun!

Proelium Law launches a presence in Iraq

Read Adrian Powell’s interview on launching a presence in Iraq. The origins of the firm Proelium Law are from Iraq. When I was there in the early 1990’s and working for a large security company as a legal advisor, it struck me that there was a need for a law firm specialising in the legal issues arising from operating in such high-risk jurisdictions.
