Trustpilot protects companies engaged in illegal business practices, such as Landau Law, Saint Clare House, 30-33 Minories, London EC3N 1DD, United Kingdom. This is a disservice to consumers and opens Trustpilot up to civil and criminal liability. Sue me Trustpilot, if you do not believe me! The last thing that Philip Landau wants is to see is justice rendered from inside a court room!
Trustpilot stated that the SDK review(s) could not be verified and this was the reason for removal. Trustpilot is lying. All content presented within the review can be verified. Trustpilot is allowing corrupt Landau Law to defraud potential clients and defame a former client explicitly to bypass litigation which would expose Landau Law crimes. The objective of settlement contracts is to avoid court litigation. This is especially the objective of fraudulent settlement contracts which Landau Law “advises” to protect corrupt abusers of whistleblowers.
Trustpilot has not verified Landau Laws flagging of the review as authentic and true, but instead becomes a co-conspirator in defrauding potential clients by allowing Landau Law to propagate misinformation. Landau Law is shielded from making definitive statements which could be supported or refuted with evidence in a court of law. Critical reviews should not be removed until there is thorough due diligence. Trustpilot essentially is calling critics of businesses liars without proof, which is defamation.
Landau Law, Watson Farley & Williams and PGS ASA do not use the illegal settlement contract which they formed as is their legal and contractual duty. Instead, Landau Law, Watson Farley & Williams and PGS ASA use social media censorship to silence accusations and depublish evidence of their many crimes against SDK and the wider upstream oil and gas industry. PGS ASA has defamed SDK on LinkedIn, Twitter, and now Trustpilot through the propagating and continued processing of defamatory forged instruments as SDK personal data. Trustpilot, Twitter, and LinkedIn irresponsibly aid and abet corruption through allowing corrupt organizations to bypass legal due process and allow social media to adjudicate on matters that they have no business or direct knowledge on. It’s disgusting!
The Crimes of Philip Landau #London #EmploymentLaw #Solicitor and Petroleum Geo-Services #PGS #CEO #Pedersen (30 December 2017)
Every question that marine seismic company PGS ASA and their counsel, Watson Farley & Williams refuses to answer should be answered by Tier 2 visa sponsored USA citizen SDKs legal advisors Philip Landau (Landau Law, London) and Holly Hobson (BDBF, London). But, Landau Law and BDBF are part of the Criminal Conspiracy to protect criminal abusers and defame (blacklist) and defraud victim SDK.
The edifice of the criminal conspiracy and confidence fraud, of which Landau and Hobson were principal double-agents, was to assist PGS ASA in denying their USA citizen employee, SDK, his contractual and legal rights under English law. Landau and Hobson provided their client SDK with illegal advice and ignored SDK documented claims of PGS ASA illegal harassment, discrimination, as well as duty of care and health and safety law violations. SDKs submitted 20 September 2013 workplace grievance was legally protected public disclosure, or whistleblowing.
SDK was employed by PGS ASA subsidiary PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Weybridge, Surrey, England, KT13 0NY, under contract governed by the laws of England. SDK first animated on his legal and contractual right to submit a workplace grievance following an event orchestrated by the Human Resources Manager, David Nicholson, PGS Marine Contract Africa Regional President, Simon Cather, and Marine Contract Sales Manager, Edward von Abendorff, who were all employed in England and thus were all bound by the provisions and procedures defined within the PGS UK Personnel Handbook.
Nicholson hosted this colloquially called “Ambush Meeting” which SDK believed was not compliant to the policies defined within the PGS UK Personnel Handbook. The Ambush Meeting is a universal tactic used by workplace bullies to expel targets so that the perpetrators – bullies – are not held accountable for their actions. The PGS UK Personnel Handbook states that such behavior will not be tolerated and perpetrators could be subject to summary dismissal from employment. PGS ASA violates their published policy and the law, so far without consequence.
PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams and Landau Law have Engaged in Multiple Criminal Acts Against USA Citizens under their Duty of Care to Escape Responsibility for an Unsafe and Illegal Work Environment.
PGS ASA Paid Bribes to Lawyers, Human Resources Professionals, and Pertinent Employee’s who participated in the voilent workplace harassment and discrimination to escape the English Justice system and send their victim to the US with false/illegal personnel records intended to illegally professionally blacklist a whistleblower from future employment in the industry.
Unfortunately and remarkably, the geophysics profession has become debased by un-professionals who benefit from breaching their employment contracts through embracing unethical business practices which violate policy, Core Values, and the Code of Conduct in order to protect criminals presiding over unsafe and violent workplace conditions. “Professional” organizations such as the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) have also placed fees for membership and convention booths above the integrity and future of the profession and professionals, which is their fundamental purpose.
In the UK employees must receive legal advise for termination settlement contracts to be valid. In the UK, termination settlement contracts that restrict an employee’s right to whistleblow are illegal – unenforceable. SDK paid Landau Zeffertt & Weir Solitors [principal Philip Landau, now with Landau Law] to advise on the grievance procedure which SDK had initiated with his employer, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY. The grievance met the standard of legally protected disclosure, or whistleblowing.
Landau recommended an illegal settlement contract. In other words, SDK never received LEGAL advise, but was instead targeted in a confidence fraud by Landau and associate employment solicitor, Holly Hobson (formally Rushton). SDK communications with Landau and Hobson show that they ignored the grievance documents contents and instead assisted PGS Exploration (UK) Limited defrauding and professional blacklisting through uttering defamatory forged records to support a performance based termination settlement contract.
Watson Farley & Williams had also advised PGS Exploration (UK) Limited and SDK through the Tier 2 work permit application process. This application process was successful and PGS Exploration (UK) Limited moved SDK and his USA-Thai citizen family members from Malaysia to England. The Tier 2 visa application process was successfully repeated in July 2013 when PGS Exploration (UK) Limited renewed their sponsorship of SDK and his dependent family members so all could legally remain in England as a family.
The grievance document delivered to PGS ASA management in Norway claimed violations in the UK Health and Safety Act 1974 and the UK Equality Act 2010. The grievance documented egregious violations in the PGS ASA Code of Conduct and Core Values. The grievance document cited defamatory and unsubstantiated personnel file records that did not adhere to the documented performance management system PGS claimed to follow. SDK was being bullied and harassed in the workplace and he wanted the abuse to stop. The distressing workplace conditions were impacting the health and well-being of he and his family who were owed a duty of care.
The grievance documented specifically accused three individual perpetrators: SDKs immediate supervisor, Edward von Abendorff, his superior, Simon Cather, and the Human Resources Manager, David Nicholson, of illegal practices and breaches in policy. In spite of this, Nicholson continued to be allowed to threaten and obstruct proceeding through the legal grievance process. Nicholson was allowed to proffer an illegal termination settlement contract prior to proceeding to the next step in the documented grievance procedure.
Following Nicholson’s illegal proffering of the termination settlement contract obstructing SDKs legal and contractual right to proceed through the grievance process, SDK contacted Philip Landau, whom he discovered through a published article. SDK did not accept the termination settlement contract at first offer and attended the grievance hearing chaired by Per Arild Reksnes (Cather’s superior) and Terje Bjolseth (Nicholson’s superior). SDKs co-worker and resident of England agreed to be SDKs witness during the proceeding. Landau was made aware of all of these facts.
Employees of PGS Exploration (UK) Limited all had to read and sign confirmation of understanding the PGS UK Personnel Handbook which, among other things, documented the grievance procedure. However, John Barnard witnessed these procedures not being followed and participated in the confidence fraud instead, along with Landau and Hobson (Rushton). SDK is a USA citizen and PGS intentionally obstructed his right to have his legitimate grievances addressed. PGS bribed global legal firms Watson Farley & Williams and LZW Solicitors along with PGS SDK co-workers and HR personnel to cooperate in the illegal termination of a foreign worker whistleblower.
PGS Exploration (UK) Limited employed global legal firm Watson Farley & Williams to negotiate the illegal termination settlement contract. Watson Farley & Williams Solicitor Rhodri Thomas participated in the gaslighting and confidence fraud of USA citizen, SDK whom PGS Exploration (UK) Limited sponsored on a Tier 2 visa, along with his dependent family members who were allowed to legally live in England, as well. The gaslighting forced false choices. SDK had to plan his move to the USA rather than resolve the harassment and discrimination issues brought-up within the SDK delivered grievance.
Landau and Hobson allowed PGS human resources to communicate from England to the US, in violation of Data Protection Principles about the terms of the illegal termination settlement contract before it was signed. SDK had to plan his move with his family from Weybridge to Houston to the point that it would have been financially and logistically irreversible. Further, the only thing keeping SDK in England was the PGS sponsored job. Why would anyone want to stay where they were being harassed and discriminated against? The financial liability for discrimination and harassment claims are unbounded, unlike an illegal termination settlement contract based on poor performance (supported by forged false records).
PGS was sponsoring US citizen SDK on a Tier 2 Special Occupation List visa at the time. PGS and Watson Farley & Williams used one set of data for the visa application process and another for the termination settlement contract, thus defrauding UK Border Agency, USA Immigration and Thai Immigration and misusing personal data/passports. The objective of the fraudsters was to limit SDKs choices and force him to accept an option that would not allow him legal due process within the English system of justice. Two days before signing the illegal instrument Landau “advised” on, SDK considered rejecting the settlement agreement and moving forward to tribunal. However, PGS has never issued a legally required response to the grievance. Yet, such a forged response exists with SDKs PGS personnel file?
The confidence fraud was the epitome of discrimination where PGS did not consider USA citizenship legally on the one hand, but could have never succeeded in their fraud without their victim being a foreignor who would be forced to leave the England and then be unable to get justice. PGS bribed lawyers to obstruct legal due process.
PGS, Watson Farley & Williams, and Landau-Hobson ignored health and safety laws and all contributed to endangering the well-being of SDK and his family. The fraudsters ignored the many claims of unsafe and unhealthy work conditions made within the grievance document. The PGS, Watson Farley & Williams, and Landau-Hobson fraud also withheld from consideration an occupational health nurse report which substantiated the claims made within the grievance. Breaching health and safety regulations is also a criminal offence. Companies have a common law duty to ensure the working environment is safe for employees. Employers who do not provide such a work environment can face consequences, including fines or prison sentences.
Corporate Norway is a Pack of Wolves in Sheeps Clothing.
MarineSeismicSurvey.com postings can only exists because criminals are obstructing justice and defrauding the public – including investors, customers, and employees – through their silence!
Corrupt Narcissistic Norway is Playing the Global Corporate Community and Norwegian People
Norway’s largest corporation, Equinor, Chairman of the Board of Directors has been permitted to illegally discriminate against a foreign worker and his family to avoid accountability for acts of violent illegal discrimination and harassment against USA and Thai citizens under his Duty of Care.
Norwegian corporations are permitted to retaliate against USA citizen whistleblowers with impunity. Corrupt political and corporate leaders deny victims of harassment, mobbing, and discrimination due process through not abiding by there own laws and denying the victims citizenship and intrinsic human rights.
Norwegian corporate retaliation against whistleblowers includes defrauding government agencies in Norway, UK, USA and Thailand as well as continuous misinformation campaigns to deceive stakeholders and investors. Norwegian corporate leaders bribe law firms to obstruct justice and protect criminals.
The defamation and fraud perpetrated against SDK and his family was dependent on PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams, and SDKs “legal” advisors, Landau Zeffertt & Weir principal Philip Landau, now with Landau Law, knowledge that SDK was a US citizen / UK Tier 2 visa holder with no ties to the UK beyond PGS ASA legally sponsored employment. The fraudulent settlement that the conspirators formed would end SDKs employment as well as allow the conspirators to escape accountability within the English legal system.
The PGS ASA personnel records are defamatory forgeries intended to illegally professionally blacklist a victim of crimes and whistleblower. SDK communications / email correspondence with Philip Landau and Holly Hobson (Rushton) from 10 October 2013 through 5 December 2013 contradict the contents of SDKs PGS ASA personnel records.
None of the dated records are signed by the employee/data subject, SDK, and are neither legal nor accurate. The records violate the Principles of the Data Protection Act, and thus are human rights violations. The illegal records would reveal fraud and other crimes in a legitimate venue. All of the conspirators – lawyers, human resources personnel, and SDK co-workers – are aware of this, especially current PGS ASA CEO and former General Counsel, Rune Olav Pedersen.
All of the lawyers / legal firms that formed the illegal employment termination settlement contract participated in the confidence fraud, health-harming harassment, and discrimination intended to deny a US citizen foreign-worker and his family legal due process under contract and the Laws of England. They are now all perverting the course of justice through their silence.
The most abhorrent and criminal silence is by SDKs hired / paid legal counsel, Philip Landau and Holly Hobson (Rushton) and SDKs designated witness for the contractually guaranteed workplace grievance process, former co-worker, John Barnard. PGS ASA bribed Landau et al. and Barnard to not support SDK, even though they agreed to ensure that SDK was treated fairly. SDK was left alone in a foreign country to combat injustice in a rigged system.
PGS ASA UK legal counsel Watson Farley & Williams was also bribed to participate in the confidence fraud. Watson Farley & Williams advised on the processing of the Tier 2 work permit and dependent family member visa that allowed the USA and Thai citizens to reside in England LEGALLY. These visas were approved based on the information which PGS ASA provided to UK immigration. However, this information is different than the records being processed by PGS ASA in their SDK personnel records today.
The only reason that SDK is still publishing legal disclosure is because Philip Landau and Holly Hobson advised on an employment termination settlement contract that is fraudulent. SDK never received “legal” advice. Philip Landau and Holly Hobson ignored the substance of SDKs formal workplace grievance claiming workplace harassment and discrimation to defraud and defame client SDK and his family members. This perverting the course of justice and fraud persists through the cabals insistence to continue processing illegal and defamatory personnel records and sharing them globally.
PGS ASA cannot stop these publications by any legal means, so the cabal continues to defraud investors and other stakeholders through suppressing the truth and by relying on social media platform censorship. Legal contracts do not rely on misinformed social media truth gate-keepers.
Legal contracts are in place to ensure investors are protected from losses which are the by-product of corruption and fiduciary breach. Corrupt organizations use illegal non-disclosure / confidentiality agreements to silence whistleblowers who reveal corruption that robs investors and manipulates the competitive market, including professional employment which favors the unethical who participate in the harassment and discrimination and turn their heads to corruption.
Had SDK NOT BEEN A FOREIGN WORKER, PGS ASA could not have so easily escaped legal due process. Because PGS ASA bribed both SDKs legal counsel, Landau and Hobson, as well as Watson Farley & Williams, PGS ASA were able to gaslight and manipulate – constrain – their crime victims options of redress. PGS ASA would only finalize settlement payments once SDK had relocated to the USA and SDK had to show proof of these expenses. This means that embezzled PGS funds were transferred for payments in the USA.
The PGS ASA confidence fraud limited SDKs choices. PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams, and Landau – Hobson ignored the health-harming impact on SDK and his family by withholding and not considering a damning Occupational Health Nurse (OHN) report which supported SDKs harassment and discrimination claims. It was imperative that SDK and his family be out of England with no health care insurance for the cabals confidence fraud to work.
What is most disconcerting is that “professionals” from PGS ASA, Watson Farley & Williams, and Landau Law so easily participated in these illegal and voilent activities against me and my wife and children. And now, they so easily protect criminals and human rights abusers. PGS ASA has caused irrepairable damage to multiple industries and their professionals. Every true professional should want the same justice that SDK seeks.
Most parents would expect these criminals to be prosecuted and held accountable. Norway is like a spoiled child that needs to be disciplined. Norway can no longer simply say that they are anti-corruption. Norway needs to prove that they are anti-corruption and investigate Equinor, Telenor, and PGS ASA leadership – anything connected to Jon Erik Reinhardsen is polluted and corrupt.
Jon Erik Reinhardsen has never been asked to address the multiple allegations made against him. This is corruption. Keeping silent is normally what the accused do when they are arrested and facing prosecution. It is a fiduciary breach to say nothing when the value of the company is reduced through such silence. Everyone except the police seems to know that Jon Erik Reinhardsen is guilty of some crime(s) and needs to be investigated.
The crimes that the Reinhardsen cabal are accused of are against a USA citizen and his Thai-USA family. Reinhardsen is also accused of multiple USA Federal crimes from misusing USA passports, forging legal records, misusing company funds to pay bribes to pervert the course of justice … the list is long. But, these crimes and cover-up are part of an intentional disinformation campaign impacting investors and professionals.
In the upside-down paradigm of Reinhardsen, the most corrupt influence the industry the most. When corruption STARTS upstream, it only increases down stream. Corruption is expensive for the end product user, meaning higher oil and gas prices are the natural result. Of course, the corrupt players will line their pockets with money stolen from the principled professionals.
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.
