Simone Fitzcharles has just returned from this year's C5 Fraud, Asset Tracing & Recovery Forum held in Miami, Florida on 18th and 19th November 2013, where she appeared as a guest speaker.  She described her experience as "delightful" and explained that "we spend most of our time finding specific legal solutions for our clients, so as a counterbalance, it is thrilling to have the opportunity from time to time to engage in public debate with colleagues from around the world on common legal issues and to compare developing views from the various jurisdictions. Moreover, we had the benefit of an experienced audience so we didn't have to traverse the rudiments."

Simone appeared on a panel with Stephen Moverley Smith QC of XXIV Old Buildings (London), Martin Kenney of Martin Kenney & Co (BVI), Nigel Meeson QC of Conyers Dill & Pearman (Cayman) and David Molton of Brown Rudnick LLP (USA) on day two of the Conference.  The panel engaged in a lively and informative discussion on interim remedies and the changing attitudes of the Caribbean Courts, giving comparative updates and debating on topical issues relating to Mareva relief, anti-suit injunctions, piercing the corporate veil and receiverships.

The Conference was attended by judges, lawyers, accountants, regulators and other high-level professionals from all over the world inclusive of Switzerland, Germany, England, USA, Cayman Islands, Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Canada, Belize, Brazil, Mexico and many others.

LXP's Litigation Group was also well-represented by partners, Scott Cruickshank (BVI), Marco Turnquest (Nassau) and Matthew Paton (Nassau).
