Within: Dispute resolution

Cains’ Peter Clucas represented the FSA in two appeals against previously imposed prohibition orders against individuals, and obtained a number of court approvals with regard to significant corporate transactions and the transfer of insurance schemes for clients such as LCLI. On the white-collar crime front, Robert Colquitt continues to advise Stuart Smalley & Coand its insurers on the civil law aspects of the imprisonment of a former consultant following the discovery of a large-scale fraud and theft scheme, and Hogan Lovells International LLP appointed him to enforce a number of Russian and English High Court judgments in the Isle of Man against a Russian individual. Seth Caine recently obtained an anti-suit injunction on behalf of Excalibur Almaz against a Japanese businessman to stop him from filing claims against the client in Texas; senior associate Jacqui Owens is also a key name to note and is currently defending Nedbank in claims pertaining to allegations of fraudulent payment requests.
