Philip Landau, current Director of London Landau Law, advised USA citizen whistleblower Steven Kalavity (SDK) on a termination settlement contract.
The Philip Landau (and Holly Hobson, now with London BDBF) advised on termination settlement contract contained Confidentiality terms and conditions which prohibited parties from publishing content that disparaged the other.
The Landau – Rushton (Hobson) advised on termination settlement contract has never been used by SDKs employer, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 0NY because the Landau – Rushton (Hobson) advised on termination settlement contract is illegal!
The UK Limitation Act 1980 allows 1-year from date of publication for disparaged parties to file a defamation claim. In other words, SDKs employer, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, has never legally denied published accusations of criminal behavior, which was the purpose of the termination settlement contract, because the contract is illegal.
Criminal conspirators Landau – Hobson, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, and Watson Farley & Williams, have never relied on the contract that they formed. Instead, they have relied on lying to platforms such as Trustpilot, LinkedIn, and Twitter to continue their defamation and false information campaign against victim of crimes and whistleblower SDK.
To avoid the English legal system which governed both the original contract of employment and termination settlement contract between SDK and PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, the criminal conspirators engaged Thailand legal firm Duensing – Kippen to blackmail/extort SDK into de-publishing legally protected public disclosure exposing their criminal conspiracy.
The website NOPGS.COM owned by SDK which published legal protected disclosure was stolen and content / evidence of criminal conspiracy destroyed through the illegal litigation in Thailand. SDK is a USA citizen. PGS ASA has never pursued litigation in the USA because their criminal conspiracy and fraud would be easy to detect.
Landau – Hobson never provided client SDK with legal advice. Landau – Hobson were principals in the confidence fraud. SDK has had to fight not only PGS ASA, but the UK employment law racket which is financed through corporate graft and corruption.
SDK contacted Philip Landau following PGS Exploration (UK) Limited proffering a termination settlement contract in lieu of proceeding through the legal and contractual grievance process.
Landau – Hobson, Watson Farley & Williams proceeded to cooperate from 10 October – 5 December to “negotiate” an illegal termination settlement contract. This gaslighting confidence fraud was carried out on SDK, a USA citizen and UK Tier 2 visa holder while SDK was a guest in England along with his three PGS Exploration (UK) Limited sponsored dependent family members holding both USA and Thailand passports.
Watson Farley & Williams advised SDK and PGS Exploration (UK) Limited throughout the Tier 2 application process. SDKs Tier 2 status was referenced within the grievance document to show discrimination practices based on nationality.
Landau – Hobson participated along with PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and Watson Farley & Williams in not only defrauding SDK and his dependent family members, but also the immigration/passport agencies of the UK, USA, and Thailand.
Landau – Hobson along with PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and Watson Farley & Williams created forged and defamatory personnel file records to support the illegal termination settlement contract. These forged and defamatory records were then shared with PGS ASAs USA subsidiary in Houston, Texas to illegally professionally blacklist whistleblower SDK, thus commiting also US Federal wire and mail fraud.
PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, Weybridge, England and Petroleum Geo-Services Incorporated, Houston, Texas, USA, directors (at the time of termination) were Jon Erik Reinhardsen, Gottfred Langseth, and Christin Steen-Nilsen. Current PGS ASA CEO & President Rune Olav Pedersen was the Company General Counsel and Legal Compliance during these multiple criminal activities illegally paid for by PGS ASA shareholders and investors.
To further defraud investors, customers, and employees, PGS ASA joined the United Nations Global Compact. Most every principle of the United Nations Global Compact had been violated when PGS ASA joined, three-weeks after SDK was coerced into signing the fraudulent termination settlement contract that Landau – Hobson advised on.
The Ramform Sovereign (PGS) commenced acquisition of a MultiClient 3D survey in the Sarawak Basin, Malaysia on behalf of the seismic consortium comprising Corrupt and Dangerous PGS, TGS and WesternGeco.
The prefunded MC3D survey over ca 8500 sq. km targets the West Luconia province of Sarawak. This area consists of Tertiary clastic and carbonate targets similar to Sabah, being part of the greater northwest Borneo Sundaland geological province.
Corrupt and Dangerous PGS seismic vessel Ramform Sovereignis towing a wide-tow source, a configuration of 14 streamers each 8025m long and with a streamer separation of 93.75m, tailored to the targets and water depths in the area.
The acreage covered in this survey is included in the Malaysia Bid Round 2021 along with other open blocks. Fast-track results will be delivered for early block evaluation.
This is the first phase of a multi-year contract awarded by Petronas in 2020 to the Sabah-Sarawak seismic consortium, through competitive bidding to acquire and process up to 105 000 sq. km of MultiClient 3D data over a 5-year period in the Sarawak Basin.
Any business association with Corrupt and Dangerous PGS ASA is de facto corrupt. Corrupt and Dangerous PGS ASA is destroying a once honorable upstream industry and its professionals.
Versal is an independent, secure, cloud-based, multi-client seismic data ecosystem where clients can easily access all their data and entitlements in one place. As a result, E&P teams can now capitalize on their interpretation and analysis workflows for their subsurface projects by leveraging a seamless licensed data experience that takes minutes rather than days, enabling maximum efficiency and opportunity generation.
[Criminal Piece of Shit] Rune Olav Pedersen, President and CEO of PGS said: “We believe that energy companies’ workflows will be transformed with Versal, enabling them to achieve their goals through rapid access to secure cloud-based multi-client seismic data and entitlements. Versal has created an environment that will benefit both the consumers of seismic data and the data providers over the longer term. We are proud and excited by the launch of this successful industry-wide digitalization initiative.”
[Criminal Piece of Shit] Rune Olav Pedersen has never been held accountable for defending his own value and reputation, or that of the professionals who work under him. The Corrupt and Dangerous PGS ASA Board of Directors and senior executives do not abide by the laws, policy, Code of Conduct and Core Values that Corrupt and Dangerous PGS ASA publish for investors, customers, employees and business partners.
This publication is only possible because Criminal Piece of Shit Rune Olav Pedersen is allowed to ignore contractual terms and conditions that prohibit the publication of content that disparages PGS ASA or its stakeholders. Why does lawyer and Criminal Peice of Shit Rune Olav Pedersen ignore terms and conditions intended to protect Company value and reputation?
Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO, CGG, [who does not understand due diligence and should be fired] said: “Versal is unique in streamlining industry access to more than 70% of the seismic multi-client market through a vendor-neutral, cloud-based common ecosystem. We are pleased to work together with TGS and PGS to bring this needed service to the market and offer client teams an easier and more efficient way to access the data they need to identify new opportunities and optimize field performance.”
Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS [who does not understand due diligence and should be fired], said: “This landmark collaboration with CGG and PGS provides a foundation for our clients to universally view, access and build innovative subsurface workflows at the click of a button. Versal’s ability to improve decision-making with less uncertainty, underpins its initiative to provide the best customer service to our clients and future clients. I look forward to Versal’s evolution to increase data richness for users.”
Whistleblower SDK has evidence that CGG and TGS have aided and abetted PGS ASA fraudsters and participated in the illegal professional blacklisting of whistleblowers who expose seismic industry corruption.

We are pleased to announce our [corrupt] collaboration with Mitsui, a leading provider of digital solutions. Together we seek to develop and deploy artificial intelligence methods to further strengthen our data processing and interpretation workflows.”
Mr. Toru Matsui, Managing Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Energy Business Unit I of Mitsui says:
“We look forward to working together with [Corrupt and Dangerous] PGS to grow its business by combining our respective areas of expertise and leveraging synergies with Mitsui’s diverse business portfolio. This collaboration is aligned with one of Mitsui’s important goals to transform and grow its business model by engaging with DX projects to meet the rapidly changing needs of the times and contribute to the development of sustainable society through its main business activities.”
Carel Hooijkaas, CEO of Magseis Fairfield, why would you do business with a company whose Board of Directors and Executives do not have an issue with publicly being called “criminal peices of shit” within numerous online publications?
Hasn’t Hooijkaas heard of due diligence?
The upstream oil and gas industry is being corrupted through stolen money and lies to investors and customers led by Norway’s PGS ASA. Industry leaders have abandoned their commitments to shareholders and continue the deception which damages the industry and its stakeholders.
Criminal Rune Olav Pedersen should be prosecuted and imprisoned for his crimes. The Norwegian government completely supports these crimes and the defrauding of investors. It’s a disgrace. These criminals have been given a free pass to defraud, defame and abuse a USA citizen’s children.
Rune Olav Pedersen has never denied nor taken responsible and appropriate legal action to stop publications which impact PGS ASA value and reputation. Rune Olav Pedersen weaponizes global laws to damage US victims of crimes and a whistleblower.
PGS ASA has misused US and Thai passports and cancelled visas so that their victim of crimes and whistleblower could not use legal due process. PGS ASA has shared defamatory forged documents globally to damage a US citizen victim of crimes and whistleblower. These all are violations of global human rights, US Federal wire and mail fraud and Thailand crimes.
Criminal Rune Olav Pedersen should be prosecuted and imprisoned for his crimes against a US citizen and his family. The Norwegian government seems to completely support these crimes and the defrauding of investors as well. It’s a disgrace. Texas must investigate the Norwegian corporate racketeering that robs global citizens.
Lawyers who formed the termination settlement contract between US citizen SDK and PGS ASA have never used nor defended this instrument to stop publications which disparage PGS ASA or any of its stakeholders. This includes the lawyers who were paid to “advise” US citizen SDK on matters of English contract and employment law, Philip Landau and Holly Hobson.
SDK believes that Landau and Hobson accepted bribes to participate in a confidence fraud to illegally terminate and professionally blacklist their “client”. The contract is legally worthless and never used.
London Lawyer Philip Simon Landau, Director of Landau Law, will not even communicate with former client SDK before complaining to TrustPilot.
Would finding out that Landau Law will accept bribes and defraud a client influence a potential customers decision?
Landau Law should be able to address allegations of wrong-doing in a professional way. TrustPilot should not weigh in and remove honest, credible, albeit bad customer experiences.

Companies House Company Number 08876494
Saint Clare House
United Kingdom (UK)
RE: Landau Law Defamation of Steven Kalavity (SDK) through flagging / submitting false claim / report to TrustPilot
ATTN: Philip Simon Landau, Landau Law Director
On 2 October 2021 Landau Law flagged a Trustpilot review written by SDK which related a truthful testimonial of a former client. Landau Law stated that the testimonial contained illegal or harmful content.
TrustPilot: Landau Law flagged this because it contains harmful or illegal content.
Landau Law does not specify what content published within the testimonial is harmful or illegal because there is no content within the published testimonial content which is untrue or illegal! Landau Law knows this.
Philip Simon Landau is an expert in UK employment law and drafting settlement contracts. Philip Simon Landau advised SDK on an employment termination settlement contract (the “Settlement”) processed under Watson Farley & Williams reference 49976848v5 which ended his employment with PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY.
Landau Law is lying to TrustPilot and falsely accusing SDK of harmful and/or illegal behavior. This is defamation. It is also a breach in the Confidentiality terms and conditions of the Settlement:
9.4 The Employee agrees neither to make nor publish, nor cause to be made or published, to anyone in any circumstances any statement (whether of fact, belief, or opinion) which directly or indirectly disparages, is harmful to or damages the reputation or standing of the Company [PGS Exploration (UK) Limited] or any Group Company or any Related Party.
9.6 Nothing in this Clause 9 shall prevent the Employee [SDK] from disclosing information which he is entitled to disclose under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998, provided that the disclosure is made in accordance to the provisions of that Act and the Employee has complied with the Company’s policy from time to time regarding such disclosure.
9.7 In consideration for the obligations entered into by the Employee [SDK] in this Clause 9, the Company [PGS Exploration (UK) Limited] agrees to make reasonable efforts:
(a) neither to make nor publish, no cause to be made or published, to anyone in any circumstances any statement (whether of fact, belief or opinion) which directly or indirectly disparages, is harmful to or damages the reputation or standing of the Employee (save as may be required by law or regulation), nor to represent the Employee as an authorized agent/employee or otherwise of the Company once his employment has ended; and
(b) to keep the existence and terms of this Agreement [Settlement] and the circumstances giving rise to its making confidential and not to disclose, communicate or otherwise make public these terms to any third party save and except as required by law or regulation, or in confidence to its professional advisers.
Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998:
Workers are to be protected when the public disclosure consists of information where the worker reasonably believes that there has been a criminal offence, breach of a legal obligation, a miscarriage of justice, a danger to the health and safety of any individual, damage to the environment, or a deliberate attempt to conceal such acts.
43J Any provision in an agreement to which this section applies is void in so far as it purports to preclude the worker from making a protected disclosure.
The UK Limitation Act 1980:
The time limit for actions for defamation or malicious falsehood. The time limit under section 2 of this Act shall not apply to an action for (a)libel or slander, or (b)slander of title, slander of goods or other malicious falsehood, but no such action shall be brought after the expiration of one year from the date on which the cause of action occurred.
Landau Law is actively trying to deceive TrustPilot users. Isn’t this exactly what TrustPilot should not allow? TrustPilot testimonials should first and foremost be truthful and accurate. If TrustPilot removes honest testimonials of a bad customer experience with a business, then there is no point to TrustPilot. Perhaps TrustPilot users would shy away from businesses who accept bribes to defraud their clients.
Landau Law had never even contacted SDK prior to complaining directly to TrustPilot. This silence and lack of engagement is what infuriates SDK the most. It is unprofessional, to say the least. When voicing grievances, the system encourages parties to work it out between themselves before involving a third-party. Landau Law has both the email used by SDK to register on TrustPilot as well as the email used when SDK actually was a client of Principal Philip Simon Landau. Both are checked regularly.
Let’s start with the title and lead of the recent SDK Landau Law testimonial: Philip Landau is an accused criminal. In fact, SDK has accused Philip Simon Landau of being a criminal within several online published blog articles. The first article that actually named the accused in the article title, My Philip Landau and Watson, Farley & Williams (WFW) London Solicitors Testimonial was first published on website nopgs.com on 8 November 2016 and then updated/revised on 9 April 2017. Watson Farley & Williams represented SDKs former employer, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited. Thus, a clear breach of the Settlement that Philip Simon Landau advised on.
SDKs central claim is that Philip Simon Landau and his assistant Holly Hobson (formally Holly Rushton), as paid legal advisors to SDK, accepted bribes and conspired to deceive client SDK into signing an illegal Settlement supported by uttered forged and defamatory personnel file records to defame (blacklist from work in the industry) and defraud client SDK. These are crimes. The article and allegations made within it are legally and contractually protected public disclosure, or whistleblowing. The article and allegations are not a breach of any legal Settlement under the laws of England, where Philip Simon Landau and Holly Hobson are licensed to practice employment law.
PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, Watson Farley & Williams, and Philip Simon Landau and Holly Hobson never cited the article as a breach of the Settlement or defamatory within the one-year period that the UK Limitation Act 1980 allows since the Settlement is governed by the laws of England.
SDK published, The Crimes of @Philiplandau and #London #EmploymentLaw #Solicitor and Petroleum Geo-Services #PGS #CEO #Pedersen on nopgs.com 30 December 2017. The links to the article along with image files were shared on the Twitter social media platform. Landau did not complain directly but blocked his former client’s tweets. Philip Simon Landau was clearly aware of the content of the linked publications which has never differed much from other articles.
In September 2018, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and (former) Company Secretary, Carl Richards, filed two claims against SDK citing Thailand law for criminal defamation. There had never been a cited breach in the Settlement. The claims reference only statements from My Philip Landau and Watson, Farley & Williams (WFW) London Solicitors Testimonial which was published over a year before that the Limitation Act 1980 dictates. The publication of these claims is also a breach of Clause 9.7 in the Settlement. SDK considered the Thai claims delivered by Thai law firm, Duensing – Kippen to be illegal blackmail / extortion to silence the truth.
During the legal process of dealing with the PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and (former) Company Secretary, Carl Richards nopgs.com was stolen and evidence – posted blog articles and image, files – were destroyed. The Settlement was never employed, but rather intentionally averted.
The entire point of a Settlement is to constrain parties from taking actions which are not prescribed by its terms and conditions. PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and (former) Company Secretary, Carl Richards, Watson Farley & Williams, along with Philip Simon Landau and Holly Hobson have breached the Settlement. SDK believes that this is because the Settlement is not a legal instrument, but rather an illegal device employed through criminal conspiracy to defraud, defame, and blacklist a whistleblower.
If SDK is wrong, the test is to use the avenues of redress prescribed within the Settlement and not complain to a third-party, such as TrustPilot.
TrustPilot needs to demand that Landau Law employ the Settlement to de-publish unfavorable testimonials. If TrustPilot does not do this, then they are propagating false and untrustworthy reviews.
