Breaking new ground in fraud recovery claims: Paul Lowenstein QC and Matthew McGhee article published by IBA

Paul Lowenstein QC (of 20 Essex Street), instructed by Cooke, Young & Keidan LLP, led a team of juniors including Harris Bor and Matthew McGhee (of 20 Essex Street) and Philip Hinks in a series of public hearings in London in November and December 2017, when the Commercial Court confirmed a suite of earlier interim orders to assist a global commodities company to trace and secure money that had been stolen from its bank accounts following a sophisticated payments fraud by unknown ‘ghost’ perpetrators.

The IBA published an article by Paul and Matthew about the case in the May issue of its magazine titled ‘Breaking new ground in fraud claims in London – international pursuit of cyber fraudsters’. IBA members can access a digital copy of the magazine by logging in to their account on the IBA website.

Paul, Harris and Matthew published a 20 Essex Street Bulletin on the case in January 2018.
