Within: Dispute resolution

DQ’s Leanne McKeown ‘is by far the best employment lawyer on the island’, according to one client; ‘very bright young lawyer’ Adam Killip is also recommended. A team led by newly appointed senior associate Tara Cubbon and ‘calm, unflappable’ practice head Giles Hill is currently representing the new court-appointed liquidator of the Louis Group in appeals contesting said appointment, and McKeown is defending the insurer of a construction company with regard to a number of claims arising from an accident on a building site which has left an individual with serious injuries. On the trusts front, associate Jessica McManus continued to advise the trustee of the Pomfrett trust on issues arising from a confiscation order for around £3m against the settlor and a restraining order against the trust’s assets filed by the CPS.
