What the guide says

“Stewarts have been developing a strong practice in fraud and insolvency-related actions,” sources told Chambers. “Stewarts get the balance of seniority and partner engagement spot on; you have support from talented associates who are given the room to run elements of the case, and that makes for an effective way of team working.” The guide highlights the team’s work representing the liquidators of Exential Investments, seeking to recover assets in connection with an USD800 million Ponzi fraud.

Head of Insolvency and Asset Recovery Alex Jay receives an individual ranking from Chambers, which notes that he is experienced in complex asset tracing and recovery in insolvency matters and often acts for liquidators in high-value fraud investigations. “Alex is very user-friendly, approachable and engaging,” interviewees reported. “He has a keen ability to remain unflappable in a crisis. I have seen him handle extremely sensitive instructions with imperturbable ease. He’s adept at finding common ground and delivering solutions.”
