Nin is a Senior Associate in the Dispute Resolution team whose practice covers a range of commercial regulatory and sanctions advice, and disputes within the financial services sector. These often include a multi-jurisdictional aspect and have involved jurisdiction disputes, insolvency and professional negligence claims.

"My client-driven, collaborative attitude and ability to keep in mind the bigger picture ensures that focus is kept on finding the right business solution, particularly during the often stressful and intense regulatory investigations where clients are experiencing litigation for the first time."

Nin is a key member of Collas Crill's risk and regulatory team. Nin brings a unique and valuable perspective to her regulatory work, having spent 8 years within the banking division of the Guernsey Financial Services Commission. Her specific experience includes undertaking assessment of organisations’ regulatory compliance regimes (both in principle and in practice); devising and implementing remedial action plans; preparation for regulatory inspections; and responding to regulatory investigations. Nin acts primarily for international banks, fund administrators, fiduciaries, directors and independent financial advisors.

Her work also includes trust litigation and Nin has been involved in a number of semi-contentious and contentious trust matters spanning the courts of Guernsey, Jersey and other jurisdictions. Many of the cases involve a breadth of issues including Beddoe applications, applicable law and/or appropriate jurisdiction, trustee negligence, related insurance disputes and acting for minor and unborn beneficiaries in the potential split of interests resulting in the removal of beneficiaries.
