I have a reputation for being commercially pragmatic, responsive and solution-minded. 

My clients include large international companies, High Net Worth individuals and corporate service providers.   

I have spoken at a number of panel events on cryptocurrency disputes and insolvencies and act for a range of crypto exchanges, service providers, victims of fraud and Insurers on a wide range of crypto disputes. 

I have been commended by clients for "thinking outside of the box" and appreciate the need for lawyers to adopt agile fee structures to unlock cases. 

Recent work highlights include:

  • AA v The Family Officer Limited: acting for a high-net worth individual to recover monies following a €15 million push payment fraud.  The case spanned multiple jurisdictions and utilised 'Persons Unknown' freezing injunctions in the English High Court as well as evidence of mobile phone triangulation and spoofed e-mails. This case was a rare example of a fraud claim succeeding at the summary judgment stage.
  • Mansard Mortgages 2007-2 PLC v Beyat Holdings Limited: obtaining a series of injunctions and declarations in response to an attack from a notorious "parasite" fraudster seeking to take control of a securitisation structure.
  • Recovering $1 million for a major High Street retail chain following funds flowing to a bank account in UAE as a result of an authorised push payment fraud, through a combined process of both English and UAE civil and criminal proceedings.
  • XY v Persons Unknown (1) Binance Holdings Limited (2) Huobi Global Limited: defending a constructive trust claim on behalf of a major crypto exchange.
  • Advising a major international oil company on potential liabilities under Bribery Act 2010.
  • Acting for an interested party to support settlement of the Norebo Conflict.
  • Acting for a major corporate to obtain a number of Norwich Pharmacal orders to identify a fraudster and remove 700 fraudulently incepted companies following a cyber-attack.
  • Acting for a wide-range of corporate entities and individual victims of fraud to recover funds from banks and crypto exchanges without recourse to litigation.
