Gibson Dunn partner suspended after misleading High Court

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher partner Peter Gray was found to have deliberately misled the High Court regarding evidence presented in a case between the Republic of Djibouti and Abdourahman Boreh, one of the African country’s wealthiest citizens.

In a ruling handed down last month, Justice Flaux said: ‘I find that Mr Gray engaged in a strategy of equivocation and evasion which was not one which any reputable and honest solicitor could ever have adopted and the concept of “acceptable evasion” is clearly anathema to the standards of professional conduct to be expected of an officer of the court.’
