Collas Crill's latest appointment, Rupert Stanning, has been admitted as an attorney-at-law of the Courts of the Cayman Islands.
Rupert joins Collas Crill as an associate in the dispute resolution team, having previously been admitted as a solicitor of the Senior Courts of England & Wales following a Master's degree in International Banking and Finance Law at UCL.
He joins the growing team in the Cayman Islands with a particular focus on cross-border insolvency and restructuring.
In addition to his primary practice areas, Rupert has a professional interest and expertise in renewable energy, having managed a biogas plant and co-founded a consultancy in the UK specialising in anaerobic digestion.
The application for Rupert's admission was made by the head of department, Stephen Leontsinis, who judiciously mentioned Rupert's enthusiasm for cricket, a pastime coincidentally shared by the presiding judge, the Honourable Mr Justice Charles Quin QC.
Stephen said: "As our commercial litigation, insolvency and restructuring team continues to grow and is heavily involved in a number of shareholder disputes and complex, high value cross-border matters, we are really pleased to welcome Rupert to our team."
