The Lawyer magazine has published its annual list of the top 20 legal cases of the year and - as with recent years - there are a huge proportion of international cases.

In addition to the now expected high number of Russian and CIS cases (including the first UK challenge to the sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU), there are a number of cases from elsewhere across the globe including Africa and Europe.

The list shows there really can be no doubt as to London being the global litigation centre.
