Director & Shareholder Disputes

-

Thanks to the depth of our experience and the resources of our team, we've acted on some of the largest pieces of litigation brought against directors offshore. We're well placed to deal with the 'bet the farm' proceedings that can occur in these type of disputes and have represented parties involved in intra-company disputes, including executive, non-executive and independent directors, majority and minority shareholders, companies and liquidators. We understand that shareholder disputes are often not simply 'black and white' and our team finds innovative and commercial alternatives to those which the Court may offer – taking a collaborative approach with our clients to ensure that the right result is achieved.

Fraud, Asset Tracing & Freezing Injunctions

-

At Collas Crill, we're used to working as part of a multi-jurisdictional team, capable of reacting and responding quickly to urgent requests for assistance with locating and freezing assets. As sophisticated defendants become more adept at dissipating assets, we've been involved in cases that created new law in the Channel Islands in relation to a party's ability to trace assets and recover their losses. With their ability to deal with complex issues the team deliver clear, commercial advice on the availability and likely success of recovery methods.

Intellectual Property and Image Rights

Intellectual Property (IP) represents the intangible value of a business, such as goodwill or brand value. Our experience in this sector enables us to assist businesses to identify, manage and exploit this value across a wide range of IP related services. As the only offshore law firm to have its own dedicated IP business, we are uniquely placed to offer a wide range of IP services to our clients, and are able to register trade marks throughout the world, whether directly or through our network agents. We also re-register patents in both Guernsey and Jersey. In addition to these traditional forms of IP we are the agents for the unique Guernsey Image Rights, enabling and managing registrations in this exciting new area of IP.
