Commercial Fraud & Asset Tracing Profile

Gavin has experience of commercial fraud cases, including those involving complex allegations of breach of trust and of fiduciary duty, with the various considerations of personal and proprietary remedies which then result. His academic and wider Chancery background assists considerably in enabling the search for practical remedial solutions in the corporate and commercial context. He has relevant knowledge in areas of equity, trusts and restitution, amongst others. He has experience of pleading and considering cases of fraudulent misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty, as well as others in which corporate veil issues have been prominent. 

A considerable part of his workload in 2018 was given over to acting as junior to Avtar Khangure Q.C. in multi-million pound proceedings in which allegations of breach of directors’ duties, constructive trust and equitable compensation claims were at the heart, as well as matters of conspiracy/economic tort against related third parties.
