Katie was pleased to be awarded the 2024 Lexology Client Choice Award for Asset Recovery in the Cayman Islands.
The Client Choice awards recognise individuals who stand out for excellent client care and quality of service, with an ability to add real value to client’s business above and beyond the other players in the market. Candidates are nominated by in-house counsel and rated on the quality of advice, commercial awareness, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, value for money, responsiveness, effective communication, clarity of documentation, sharing of expertise, appropriate staffing, project management, use of technology, loyalty and ethics.
Since launching Claritas, Katie has been helping clients with a number of cross-border asset tracing matters, including the proceedings by Fortunate Drift Limited against Canterbury Securities Ltd in which Claritas obtained judgment following a 2-week trial (outlined here) and an order for repatriation of funds to the Cayman Islands (outlined here).
Claritas has also obtained clarification of the scope of the cross-undertaking in damages in the matter of Seahawk China Dynamic Fund, and obtained a disclosure order under the Norwich Pharmacal jurisdiction, including a novel order for payment of costs by the wrongdoer, in Northeast Securities Co Ltd v Tricor Services and International Corporation Services Ltd.
