Since joining PCB he has been involved in multi-jurisdictional asset tracing cases including obtaining freezing orders in England and various European jurisdictions, a ground-breaking Search Order against a respondent against whom there is no cause of action, novel orders for alternative service and password cracking, and disclosure orders against third parties in England and the US.
