'Shaun has detailed knowledge, vast experience, determination to prevail and a commercial approach'
I lead our Litigation and Restructuring & Insolvency practices in Asia.
Prior to relocating to Hong Kong in 2015, I spent almost a decade practising in the Cayman Islands and in the British Virgin Islands. Before this I worked in both Brisbane and London.
I have extensive experience acting both for and against insolvency practitioners in all forms of external administrations, as well as acting for parties involved in general commercial, financial services and trust disputes, and have been involved in many of the largest offshore disputes to come before the courts of the BVI and Cayman Islands in recent history.
I also have considerable experience advising on corporate governance matters, including in relation to the duties owed by directors and general partners, in addition advising more generally on the proper operation of investment funds and other offshore structures.
I am included in all of the major legal directories, including Legal 500, Chambers, Who's Who Legal and IFLR.
