Cameron graduated from The Queen's College, Oxford, with First Class Honours in Modern History. Converting to law, he trained at Carter-Ruck under the firm's founder Peter Carter-Ruck and became a partner in 1995. He is now Carter-Ruck's Senior Partner, having been the firm's Managing Partner for 11 years previously.
Cameron specialises in public international law issues, and litigation, dispute resolution and regulatory cases involving an international or diplomatic context. His clients include a large number of governments, heads of state and leading political figures from across the world as well as commercial entities and individuals requiring specialist advice on international issues.
In addition to many years conducting litigation in the High Court in London, Cameron has extensive experience of matters proceeding before the United Nations, the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights. Carter-Ruck's International Law Group is currently involved in cases that are progressing in the national courts of more than twenty countries located across the globe. Cameron is himself presently engaged in a number of sanctions-related cases arising out of the events of 9/11 and is also co-ordinating the defence of a billion dollar, 9/11-related claim in the New York District Court where his team has already secured the dismissal of the cases brought against three Carter-Ruck clients.
More than two decades at Carter-Ruck has given Cameron enormous experience of dealing with the UK and international media and he is able to apply the reputation management expertise he has acquired to manage media interest in cases involving his clients.
Cameron also continues to bring claims for a number of his clients against the international media. Successes include the recovery of more than £500,000, together with the publication of a front page apology, upon the settlement of a claim brought by Sheikha Mouza Al Misnad (wife of the Emir of Qatar) against the newspaper Azzaman; the award of £165,000 - one of the largest libel awards of the past decade - to Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi (the leader in exile of the Tunisian opposition) against global satellite news channel Al Arabiya; and the victory achieved by the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, against the London Daily Telegraph newspaper.
Cameron is a member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce, the American Society of International Law, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and the London Solicitors Litigation Association. He is the co-editor of the sixth edition of 'Carter-Ruck on Libel and Privacy' and was a contributor to OUP's 'Whistleblowing'.
