Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Alex Jay helps his clients in a wide range of commercial disputes, with particular expertise in matters involving fraud or misappropriation of assets. He has substantial experience advising on disputes with an international aspect, coordinating lawyers in multiple jurisdictions to implement strategies to resolve disputes or recover assets effectively and efficiently.

Most of the work Alex does has an international aspect: 90 per cent of commercial disputes by London law firms now involve an international party, and he is often working with a team of lawyers and other professionals across the world to work out strategies and put solutions in place.

Fraud cases in particular often require urgent steps to be taken overseas. Wherever action is required, we can find and implement solutions rapidly through our extensive and highly skilled international network, maximising the chance of asset recoveries.

Alex is a certified fraud examiner and a member of the advisory council of the ACFE, the international body of anti-fraud professionals operating worldwide. Alex is also a board member of the ACFE UK.

Alex has recently helped insolvency officeholders secure assets valued at over £85 million for distribution to creditor-victims of a fraudulent Ponzi scheme. He also helped secure settlement of a £100 million claim as a defendant on behalf of a multinational plc, for a net payment of less than 25 per cent of the sum claimed.

His clients include governments, corporates, individuals, family offices, financial institutions, and insolvency practitioners and officeholders.

WWL says: Alex Jay is a highly rated lawyer who sources consider “dynamic and dedicated”.
