DQ is excited to announce that Mark Emery, Associate Director in its Dispute Resolution team, is to become head of the firm’s new Insolvency & Restructuring team.
The newly established Insolvency & Restructuring team will advise clients in respect of issues concerning 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.
Mark qualified as a Manx Advocate in 2012 and since has regularly been ranked by Legal 500 as well as Chambers & Partners UK. Mark has regularly appeared at all levels of the Isle of Man High Court of Justice and is a key player behind DQ’s membership in the International Fraud Group, made up of handpicked of specialist fraud lawyers across the world.
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 and restructuring, providing clients with a first-class, bespoke, 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, Andrew Harding, Head of Corporate and Commercial, added: ‘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.’
DQ is a leading law firm in the Isle of Man, and a member of TAG Alliance, one of the largest and most respected multidisciplinary alliances of independent firms covering 110 countries, meaning that it is well-connected where cross-border issues arise.
Further, DQ’s membership in the International Fraud Group 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.
