His recent matters include representing a South American voluntary liquidator against an application to remove and replace liquidator; resisting Queen’s Counsel’s application to strike out statement of claim of a U.S. claimant, securing a stay of proceedings against a land dispute claim; and obtaining a favourable outcome for a BVI company in recovery of land proceedings.
