Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Martin Kenney is the managing partner of Martin Kenney & Co Solicitors in the BVI. The firm's asset recovery work lies at the intersection of cross-border insolvency, creditors' rights, and complex commercial litigation. Wired Magazine has named the firm among the “sharpest fraud-busters in the world”.

Leading a team of 20 lawyers, investigators and forensic accountants, Martin Kenney is regarded as a ground-breaker in the use of pre-emptive remedies, multidisciplinary teams and professional litigation funding in response to global economic crime to uproot bank secrets and freeze hidden assets in multiple jurisdictions. He is a practising solicitor-advocate of the senior courts of England and Wales, and the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court at the BVI and at St Vincent and the Grenadines; a non-practising barrister and solicitor of British Columbia; and a licensed foreign legal consultant in the state of New York.

Mr Kenney is the BVI member of ICC FraudNet, a specialist international network of 75 leading fraud and asset recovery lawyers from 65 countries, which is administered by the Commercial Crime Services Division of the International Chamber of Commerce.

OffshoreAlert of Miami said: “Martin Kenney is perhaps the best-known fraud and asset recovery attorney in the world, having worked on a number of high-profile international cases.” Mr Kenney was given the 2014 Cressey Award by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), an organisation with 70,000 members in 160 countries. The Cressey Award is the highest honour given by the ACFE for lifetime achievement in combating and detecting fraud. 

WWL says: Martin Kenney is “a great strategy man” according to peers who praise his work dealing with cross-border asset tracing, freezing and insolvency matters.
