His practice also includes civil fraud, asset tracing, shareholder disputes, regulatory investigations and insurance/reinsurance insolvency.

My experience in large commercial and high value trust disputes involving Gibraltar structures will be beneficial to many international Signature clients and I am looking forward to now being able to network more closely with my London colleagues.”
