Mourant

I’m a Partner of Mourant Ozannes (Jersey) LLP and have broad experience in multi-jurisdictional commercial litigation, arbitration and regulatory matters.

I regularly advise on a wide range of commercial disputes, insolvencies and restructurings with a particular focus in the areas of contentious trust matters, partnership and investment fund disputes, banking litigation and corporate liquidations and reorganisations.

I’ve been involved in some of the largest and most complex trust proceedings, funds disputes and insolvencies in Jersey and the Cayman Islands, and have regularly appeared before courts in these jurisdictions. Recent cases include: Financial Technology Ventures II (Q) LP & Ors -v- (1) ETFS Capital Limited and (2) Graham Tuckwell [2020]; Representation Lydian Holdings Limited [2020]; Dick Stock v GB Trustees and Ors [2019]; CMC Holdings Limited and Anor v Martin Forster and Ors [2019]; Representation of Virtue Trustees (Switzerland) AG, re The C Trust [2018] and HSBC CI v Kwong [2018].

I am recommended in both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, and I feature on the Citywealth Leaders List, the Who's Who Legal: Private Client list, and on the Legal Week Private Client Global Elite: Rising Leaders list.

I am the co-editor of the Jersey chapter of the current Chambers & Partners Global Insolvency Guide.
