Katie Molloy helps clients to effectively and efficiently recover assets or funds by resolving banking, financial or insolvency disputes quickly and commercially.
Katie works with financial institutions, including the major clearing banks, automotive and asset financiers, with all their litigation requirements. Katie also works with corporates, creditors and office holders, including the Big Four accounting firms and other leading insolvency practitioners.
Banking and insolvency cases often involve complicated and continually evolving legal and commercial issues. Katie uses an in-depth understanding of the recovery arena to secure a positive return for her clients as they pursue banking and insolvency cases, often through litigation.
She has provided strategic advice in, for example, pursuing guarantors of loans, taking possession proceedings, enforcing guarantees, return of goods, and pursuing charge card debt from high and ultra-high net worth individuals. Additionally, she has dealt extensively with administrations and litigation proceedings that may arise from them.
Katie also undertakes general commercial litigation for a number of high-profile clients and has considerable experience acting for both claimant and defendant.
The world Katie works in is high-pressured and very challenging; it takes a driven personality to achieve the right results! With litigation there is always a deadline, either from the court or other stakeholders. You are also constantly facing the unknown. New forces could come into play at any point. An unexpected injunction is one good example, but we’ve faced everything – up to and including the bailiffs turning up on a client’s doorstep.
Being crisis-ready and having strategies in place to deal with matters effectively is extremely important. Things are always changing and for Katie, this means lots of variety; she could be in Berlin one week for a conference and in London for a week-long trial the next. Clients appreciate our adaptability, as keeping one step ahead can make a huge difference to the eventual return.
Financial institutions, finance companies and insolvency practitioners.
