I have over 10 years’ experience of working in our insolvency and asset recovery team that specialises in global asset tracing, recovery and enforcement.
I manage contentious personal and corporate insolvency appointments and work closely with solicitors to formulate legal claims to enforce judgements and maximise recoveries for those who have suffered a financial loss.
I lived in the British Virgin Islands for two years where I led several high-profile feeder funds in liquidation. This enabled me to obtain experience in understanding and unwinding complex corporate structures in offshore jurisdictions and attending to contentious trust matters.
These skills have supported my focus on assisting beneficiaries, trustees and representatives in matrimonial, family, trust and probate disputes with the support of my colleagues in the corporate intelligence, forensic, and valuation teams.
