Sarah Tresman

Sarah Tresman

Call: 2008 (England and Wales); 2016 (Cayman Islands)

Sarah is a versatile and experienced barrister with extensive client-facing expertise in England and offshore.

She spent seven years at the London Bar and three years in the Cayman Islands as a litigation attorney with a top tier offshore law firm, Walkers. In August 2019, she returned to Twenty Essex, with expertise significant in civil fraud and asset tracing, company law, and commercial law.

Whilst at Twenty Essex, Sarah developed a strong commercial practice across Chambers’ core practice areas. She appeared as sole advocate in the County Courts and High Court and as a junior in the Court of Appeal. She has experience cross-examining expert and factual witnesses. She has extensive client-facing experience having spent periods of time working in-house in London and Norway.

During her time in the Cayman Islands, Sarah worked in the insolvency and dispute resolution department with a focus on litigation. She pursued work related to insolvency, civil fraud and asset tracing, and provided legal services to global corporations, financial institutions, capital markets participants and investment fund managers.

Sarah regularly advised on the laws of the Cayman Islands in the context of commercial and company disputes (including shareholder disputes and director disputes and piercing the corporate veil), contentious trust litigation, insolvency, civil fraud and asset tracing. She frequently considered the availability of interlocutory relief, including freezing injunctions and post-judgment enforcement issues. She has experience obtaining and responding to interim injunctions, securing Norwich Pharmacal relief in novel circumstances, and obtaining anti-suit injunctions.

She has substantial experience appearing in the courts of the Cayman Islands, working closely with partners and leading counsel, with a specialist interest in Saudi law (in particular issues pertaining to proprietary claims and tracing) and Cayman Islands conflict of laws rules.
