Wilberforce welcomes new tenants as growth of its specialist Commercial Group continues
James and Anna bring their exceptional reputations in commercial litigation, fraud, company and insolvency to support the specialist Commercial Group at Wilberforce. James appeared in the long running and controversial Thevarajah litigation, involving an alleged fraud against the purchase of certain Special Purpose Vehicles. There were a number of hearings in the High Court and Court of Appeal, and a Supreme Court hearing in 2016. Anna’s experience includes acting in the largest case to have been litigated in the Isle of Man, AK Investment v Kyrgyz Mobil Tel Ltd (the “Bitel litigation”), involving allegations of fraudulent misappropriation in relation to a Kyrgyz telecoms operator.
Head of Chambers Michael Furness QC commented “Our intention is to ensure the legal services we offer to our clients are of the highest quality and match the demands of an increasingly specialist domestic and international market. I am delighted that James and Anna will be joining us at Wilberforce. Their high quality practices will further strengthen our specialist Commercial Group.”
