The Dispute Resolution team, led by Head of the department Paul Marmor, advised the executors of a foreign lawyer who had managed a family office across Europe and through an offshore centre in the Caribbean.

The deceased was accused of professional negligence and being part of a conspiracy to defraud in relation to the sale and purchase of a multi-million-pound yacht.

The Sherrards Dispute Resolution and Fraud department successfully challenged the claim, which was rightfully dismissed.

There was no suggestion of any wrongdoing on the part of the deceased, whose reputation was and remains protected.

The team defended this multi-million-pound fraud matter.
