Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Jane has over 25 years of experience of acting for claimants and defendants in fraud claims and a wealth of experience acting as a court appointed Supervising Solicitor re executing Search and Doorstep Delivery Up orders. Jane has managed numerous cases involving freezing, search, disclosure, gagging and delivery up injunctions.

Jane is ranked as a leading individual in The Legal 500 (2016) for civil fraud. The Legal 500 describes her as “outstanding” and “one of the standout litigators of her generation”; in addition, the guide states, “clients adore her tenacity." Chambers & Partners (2017) ranks Jane in Band 1 for civil fraud and states Jane is a "strong, strategic fraud litigator" and is considered "extremely tough" in litigation." Chambers & Partners reports that “clients appreciate her ‘no-nonsense attitude, and the way she gets to the heart of issues and helps us navigate through it in a straightforward, commercial and pragmatic way’." 

WWL: Asset Recovery (2017) names Jane as one of the "thought leaders" and comments: "Colston emerges as one of the market leaders in the London market thanks to her vast experience coordinating complex, cross-border fraud cases. As one client states: 'Jane's diligence and stamina are exemplary. She has been consistently able to withhold immense pressure, remain balanced and keep pushing back on the attacks of an extremely aggressive claimant.'"

Jane regularly speaks at international conferences, eg, the Annual Bar and Young Bar Conference in 2016; the C5 fraud, asset tracing and recovery conferences in 2016 and 2017; and the IBA litigation conference in 2017.

Jane is part of Brown Rudnick’s 14-partner civil fraud and white-collar crime litigation and regulatory team in London.

WWL says: Jane Colston emerges as one of the market leaders in the London market thanks to her vast experience coordinating complex, cross-border fraud cases.
