The Litigation Team at ISOLAS offers practical and technical expertise to clients involved in a broad range of disputes. As you would expect in an offshore environment, these disputes are often multi-jurisdictional in nature.

Our lawyers – all of whom have trained as barristers or solicitors in the United Kingdom – have particular expertise in banking, trusts, company matters, regulatory matters, insolvency and asset recovery, and fraud and asset tracing claims. 

We are frequently instructed to apply for interim relief – usually in the form of freezing orders and Norwich Pharmacal orders – in the Supreme Court of Gibraltar.  Due to the international character of much of our work, we have considerable experience of working in conjunction with lawyers in other offshore jurisdictions and in the City of London. 

Our Litigation Team offers strategic advice that will enable you to manage disputes and potential disputes effectively. We strive to gain a thorough understanding of our clients’ businesses so that we are in a position to pursue their interests vigorously.

Where appropriate we give careful consideration to alternatives to litigation, and we have successfully negotiated a number of settlements through mediation.  When recourse to the courts becomes necessary our lawyers offer strong, determined representation to secure the best outcome for our clients. 

Our expertise includes:

  • General commercial litigation
  • Contentious and semi-contentious compliance and regulatory matters
  • Civil fraud, injunctions and asset-tracing
