LONDON, April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Global disputes and investigations firm Kobre & Kim has strengthened its multijurisdictional insolvency disputes capabilities with the addition of senior lateral hire Mark Griffiths in London.
Mr. Griffiths, an English solicitor, brings deep experience in conducting cross-border insolvency investigations and related asset recovery.
"Bringing Mark on board is key to our strategy for serving as the premier disputes and investigations team for cross-border insolvency cases," said firm co-founder Michael S. Kim. "Mark is a seasoned and well-respected professional in this area, and brings useful expertise in dealing with English insolvency matters."
The firm's Bankruptcy & Debtor-Creditor Disputes group often serves as special litigation counsel and international asset recovery counsel in insolvencies originating from various jurisdictions, including Brazil, the Cayman Islands, Delaware, England, Hong Kong, New York, and Spain. The team's representations include clawback actions, priority contests, intercreditor disputes, and investigating and recovering assets of insolvent entities, often in simultaneous legal proceedings in multiple countries.
"Having witnessed and admired Kobre & Kim's expansion in the insolvency litigation realm from afar, I am thrilled to now be part of that growth," Mr. Griffiths said. "I look forward to bringing my ability to handle insolvencies and related investigations, as well as my experience practicing in the UK and the Caribbean, to bolster the firm's global insolvency offerings."
