Mr Daniel Warents
Daniel specialises in most areas of chancery and commercial work both in England and in a number of off-shore jurisdictions. He has a particular interest in shareholder and joint venture disputes, as well as trust matters, and insolvency.
Daniel has appeared in some of the most significant cases in his areas of expertise in recent years including Investec v Glenalla  AC 271 (the leading case on trustee liability to third party creditors), and Chu v Lau  1 WLR 4656 (the leading case on just and equitable winding up on the ‘deadlock’ ground), and Invest Bank PSC v El-Husseini  EWCA Civ 555 (a leading case on the interpretation of s.423 of the Insolvency Act 1986). Daniel is also a barrister member of the Insolvency Rules Committee.
As well as trial advocacy, Daniel has substantial experience in dealing with applications raising complex legal and factual issues including jurisdiction and forum challenges, applications for injunctive relief, and summary judgment and strike-out applications.
He also has significant experience working on cases in the BVI, Cayman, Bermuda, Isle of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey. Daniel is one of only a small number of junior barristers called to the BVI bar so that his fees are recoverable as a disbursement following the decision of the BVI Court of Appeal Shrimpton v Scriven & Ors BVIHCMAP 2016/0031.
