Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past five years?

I acted for the government of Brazil in a civil fraud action against the former mayor of Sao Paulo. We won the case at first instance in Jersey and in the Court of Appeal. I acted as the Advocate in Jersey and Junior Counsel in the Privy Council. We established the principle of reverse tracing for the first time in Jersey or English law. The case remains the leading precedent for reverse tracing.
