CANDEY has a breadth of experience in the context of the preservation of assets and the enforcement of debts, judgments and arbitral awards.
We frequently act in relation to both the obtaining and discharging of worldwide freezing injunctions, both in the UK High Court and overseas. Recent examples include the obtaining of a multimillion pound worldwide freezing injunction in the High Court against renowned international businessman Sheikh Mohamed Bin Issa Al Jaber, as well as a freezing order in the British Virgin Islands in support of a multimillion pound crypto-asset claim.
We are also regularly instructed in relation to the enforcement of judgment debts and arbitral awards, including applications for charging orders, possession orders and seizure of assets, whether in the UK or overseas.
In one current example, CANDEY is acting in the High Court for a group of investors seeking to enforce a multimillion pound judgment debt against a bankrupt debtor’s interest in a pension scheme holding a highly valuable multi-million pound Mayfair property.
In an insolvency context, CANDEY has longstanding experience of prosecuting and defending claims through Court appointed receivers and provisional liquidators over a company and its assets.
Our experience in acting both for and against Court appointed receivers and provisional liquidators, is primarily in the UK although we have significant experience in the BVI, where a number of our lawyers have been called.
We also act and have acted as fixed charge receivers.
