Our Insolvency and Asset Recovery team has been ranked for the second consecutive year for Asset Tracing & Recovery. The team is acknowledged on a global-wide basis for their expertise in this area.

Acting for officeholders and other stakeholders including lenders, directors, shareholders and investors, our team of contentious insolvency and asset recovery specialists solves disputes, monetises claims and pursues the recovery of assets in an insolvency or distressed context.

Head of Insolvency and Asset Recovery Alex Jay is also ranked as a notable practitioner by the Chambers guide.

Our team in Chambers

The 2024 guide notes Stewarts has “cross-border experience in complex asset tracing and recovery mandates. Its lawyers assist with high-value recoveries in international civil fraud and insolvency cases.” Chambers highlights our team having acted for the liquidators of Kijani Resources and Ratio Ltd., two companies involved in a fraudulent investment scheme, in asset tracing and recovery actions.

“Stewarts’ professionals are known for their hands-on approach. They’re available and keen to problem solve,” one client told Chambers. Another said that they “rely heavily on top-quality legal representation, and Alex Jay with his team at Stewarts are exactly that. They are calm, measured and [have a] tactical approach.”

Interviewees commented: “Alex Jay is very commercially minded and very good at chasing the issues that matter. He’s extremely calm and he gets the big picture better than anyone else… a very experienced fraud and litigation lawyer, who has a very creative and inventive approach to asset tracing and recovery litigation.”
