Samuel Ouriach Associate Director London +44 (0)20 7865 2911

I work in our Insolvency and asset recovery department, specialising in complex, contentious and cross border insolvency. I have over 10 years’ experience in this area with significant time spent working offshore in the British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands.

I have enforced freezing orders/judgments and brought claims in various overseas jurisdictions including BVI, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, PRC, CIS, Eastern Europe, South America and Caribbean regions.

My focus is on unwinding complex structures to uncover hidden assets and forming legal claims against the perpetrators, benefitting from my strong network of international professionals across our offshore businesses.

I have managed high profile, high value insolvency cases with a focus on both grand corruption and large-scale ponzi/investment schemes. Notable cases include a USD$200 million Brazilian grand corruption case, an Antiguan USD$7 billion ponzi scheme, and US and UK based investment scams.  

I work closely with our forensic and investigations team and corporate intelligence unit to assist with our investigations and provide effective streamlined solutions.
