DQ is excited to announce that Mark Emery, Associate Director in its Dispute Resolution team, is to become head of DQ’s new Insolvency & Restructuring team.
DQ’s new Insolvency & Restructuring team will advise clients in respect of issues concerning insolvency & restructuring, including compulsory liquidation, personal bankruptcy, voluntary liquidation, recognition of foreign insolvency practitioners, company rescue, schemes of arrangement and the responsibilities and duties of a company director when there are concerns regarding insolvency.
Whilst DQ is a leading law firm in the Isle of Man, its membership in the TAG Alliance (one of the largest and most respected multidisciplinary alliances of independent firms covering 110 countries) means that it is well-connected where cross-border issues arise. Further, DQ’s membership in the International Fraud Group (containing a handpicked group of specialist fraud lawyers across the world), means that it is perfectly placed to assist where (as in many cases) there are elements of fraud to a particular piece of insolvency & restructuring work which requires urgent action.
Speaking about his appointment, Mark said “I am delighted to head DQ’s new Insolvency & Restructuring team. DQ is already known in the Isle of Man as a market-leader in respect of contentious and non-contentious insolvency & restructuring, providing clients with a first-class, tailored, and cost-effective service tailored to suit individual legal and business requirements. With DQ’s experience in representing clients in various complex and high-profile cases in the Isle of Man High Court, often dealing with difficult questions of personal or corporate insolvency law, it was a natural decision to launch DQ’s own freestanding Insolvency & Restructuring team and I am excited to demonstrate what our new team can achieve for our clients.”
Commenting upon Mark’s appointment as the head of DQ’s new Insolvency & Restructuring team, Andrew Harding, Head of Corporate and Commercial, commented “Mark has been a brilliant addition to DQ and his expertise in the field of insolvency and restructuring is widely recognised both locally and internationally.”
