Adil Mohamedbhai –Serle Court ‘Adil is an excellent barrister who combines technical and strategic skills. He can pick holes in a case that no one else usually does. He is always on top of the facts, provides excellent commercial advice and his written advocacy is excellent.’
Serle Court is ‘a class act‘ with ‘a number of fantastic silks and excellent junior coming up‘. The set has a top-notch reputation for high-end Chancery, offshore, and fraud claims, which translates well into broader commercial disputes. Several members, including Jonathan Adkin KC and Adil Mohamedbhai for the trustee defendants and James Weale for an intervenor, are involved in Wong v Grand View Private Trust Company & Ors, a case before the Bermuda Supreme Court in which the claimant seeks to recover billions of dollars of assets purportedly held in the purpose trusts on behalf of his late father’s estate. Philip Marshall KC and Simon Hattan are acting for one of the defendants, Kamran Amouzegar, in The Public Institution for Social Security v Al-Rajaan, a US$800m-plus fraud claim involving bribery allegations linked to banking and investments of Kuwait’s state pension fund.
