FIRE Starters: Hot Topics in the New World Order

Highlights

These are unprecedented times - there's been an overnight shift to remote working for almost the entire population.

Many businesses are furloughing staff and it remains to be seen how many businesses will re-open on the other side.

Long established laws are being suspended and re-written overnight in order to help businesses survive. The onus to unravel and re-establish what is left will fall on FIRE practitioners.

We will be looking at the current issues in a quickFIRE format from across the spectrum of asset recovery practitioners.

Recognised by The Legal 500 as a “rising star” “headed for the very top”, Jon specialises in high-value, complex international commercial disputes with particular expertise in civil fraud, enforcement and asset recovery (including both commercial and sovereign debt), and he has obtained a number of ground-breaking orders in this regard. The Legal 500 has called Jon a “bright young gun with a shrewd mind and a calm approach” and states there is “complete trust and faith in Jon’s advice and his expertise”. It recognises him as a Next Generation Partner in Civil Fraud and Banking Litigation, and Who’s Who Legal identifies Jon as a future leader for commercial litigation. Jon has an international practice with clients including sovereigns, financial institutions, corporate clients, high-net-worth individuals and insolvency practitioners, and has acted on a number of complex and high value Russian/CIS cases.

Emma Ruane
Partner
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.
