Skip to main content

My specific focus is on substantial and highly technical claims brought by insolvency practitioners, often involving significant fraud and complex multi-jurisdictional recovery options. I am confident in all areas of insolvency law advice, and my expertise covers a broad range of both personal and corporate insolvency, on both a contentious and non-contentious basis. I advise financiers, insolvency practitioners, directors, and stakeholders as well as creditors on all issues arising in stressed and distressed scenarios.

I have been involved in several high-profile reported cases, including advising liquidators of a company involved in a large multi-jurisdictional tax fraud, assisting a trustee in bankruptcy in obtaining freezing injunctions in India, and providing counsel to a London-based property entrepreneur facing creditor claims in excess of £525 million. I have considerable expertise in obtaining worldwide freezing injunctions, realising offshore assets for the benefit of insolvent estates and I have recently advised provisional liquidators appointed over a series of companies involved in a large-scale fraud.
