Caren Pegg is also highly skilled in insolvency litigation as well as on asset tracing, fraud and freezing injunctions. Charles Davies is a key name in the market for regulatory disputes, as evidenced by having the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority as a key client. Christopher Cope is also highly recommended and highly skilled in insolvency and fraud disputes. Counsel Claire Corkish advises on injunctive relief, search and disclosure orders, and the ‘excellent‘ senior associate Erin Trimble-Cregeen is also recommended.
