Emma Ruane
Of Counsel
Peters & Peters

Emma has extensive expertise in civil fraud litigation, in particular obtaining and defending worldwide freezing injunctions. As a result of her work on behalf of the Department of Health, Emma has experience in litigating private damages actions in competition cases alleging abuse of dominant position and entry into anti-competitive arrangements. In the competition litigation practice area, Legal 500 described Emma as “very sharp”.

Emma’s work often involves cross-border or international elements: amongst other things Emma was part of the team that defended the former CEO of what was Nigeria’s fourth largest bank, conducting 2 weeks of the trial of the claim in Lagos. Emma has also assisted in the taking of evidence from witnesses in Nigeria, made representations on behalf of clients at the United Nations In New York and drafted evidence in support of an anti-suit injunction seeking to prevent the continuation of a claim filed in Israel.

Described by the directories as a “rising star” and “a bright young gun” who “adds a sprinkling of tactical gold-dust where necessary”, Jon’s practice focuses on complex, high-value litigation for financial institutions, corporate clients, high net-worth individuals and insolvency practitioners. 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.
