Prashan Patel Director London +44 (0)20 7865 2328

I am a director in our insolvency and asset recovery team dealing with contentious assignments. I specialise in global asset tracing, recovery, and enforcement, where I use insolvency and civil procedures as powerful tools to recover hidden and misappropriated assets to maximise financial recoveries for stakeholders.

My work typically involves multiple onshore/offshore insolvency appointments – liquidations, bankruptcies, and receiverships – where I coordinate enforcement and asset recovery strategy across multiple jurisdictions, including India, the Middle East, the UK, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, the Offshore Financial Centres, and the US.

I have extensive experience working with Indian and Middle Eastern financial institutions, corporates, and lawyers, in enforcing non-performing loans, judgments, and arbitration awards. I often act on a contingent basis where I share the costs and rewards of recovery.

I have recently been working with Grant Thornton India to help grow and develop its asset recovery and insolvency business in light of recent legislative changes in India. The recovery of assets related to Indian fraud or bad debts outside of the jurisdiction is a particular interest and focus.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading, hiking and spending time outdoors.
