Who's Who Legal Asset Recovery: Lawyers

Brian Simms QC is senior partner at Lennox Paton, based in the Nassau office. He is head of the litigation department and insolvency & restructuring groups. 

Brian is one of the Bahamas’ most highly regarded litigators, instructed in the most substantial Bahamian and international offshore cases.  He has vast experience in the courts of the Bahamas appearing regularly at first instance and in the Court of Appeal, as well as in the Privy Council.

His practice covers commercial litigation, trust disputes, insolvency, asset recovery and complex fraud cases.  He has extensive experience in running offshore cases involving a number of jurisdictions. He is also often called upon to form part of a team of international lawyers from onshore and offshore jurisdictions.

Brian is extremely popular with clients, who describe him as a “top offshore silk” with formidable “depth of knowledge and experience”. Clients appreciate his no-nonsense approach; he is noted for “telling you straight where you are and if you are likely to win”.

Brian attended both McGill University and Exeter University. He is a member of the Bahamas Bar Association, a former member of the Bar Council and the former chairman of the Bar and Bench Committee. He is an overseas member of the English Chancery Bar Association, a member of Insol and an honorary fellow of the Institute for International Legal Studies. He has also served on the Bahamas Constitutional Review Commission, and was acting judge of the Bahamas Supreme Court in 2015.

WWL says: Brian Simms QC is “a no-nonsense and pragmatic lawyer” who sources would “certainly recommend” for asset recovery matters.
