Some of his recent work includes:

  • Max is currently acting for creditors of a failed investment bank in their claims to recover their investments.
  • Re Hole in One Limited (in liquidation): Max acted for the liquidators of Hole in One in relation to a number of claims for recovery of assets. As well as tracing claims, there were also claims for breaches of fiduciary duty.
  • Re: TAG Capital Ventures Limited & Ors: Max acted for creditors applying for the appointment of a Provisional Liquidator due to fraudulent misappropriation of funds and, immediately upon appointment, acted for the Provisional Liquidator in applying for a freezing injunction against an ex-director.
  • James Earp v Thomas McCabe & Ors: Max acted for the liquidators of a telecommunications company. The claim was for breach of fiduciary duty arising out of a fraud perpetrated by the company whilst under the control of the respondents.
