Beth Adams practices commercial litigation and arbitration, with a particular focus on fraud, insolvency, and trust disputes for a range of clients, including insolvency practitioners and high net worth individuals.
Beth's recent experience includes acting for a Kazakhstan bank in tracing assets and pursuing claims in England and Wales against several alleged fraudsters domiciled in a number of jurisdictions. In recent months, the claimant has made several successful applications for interim relief in the courts of England and Wales and Cyprus (including for Norwich Pharmacal relief and freezing orders) in support of their claims that are valued at more than 30 million U.S. dollars. Beth has also assisted in the ongoing defense of two high net worth individuals in claims of fraud and deceit involving Liechtenstein trust structures. Such claims were brought in the High Court and successfully referred to arbitration pursuant to section 9 of the Arbitration Act 1996.
Previously, Beth acted for the insolvency officeholders of UK high street retailer BHS (one of the highest profile retail insolvencies of recent years with outstanding debt of more than £1bn) on the wind-down of the business and investigations into the company's affairs. She also acted for the joint administrators of Angelic Interiors Limited in their investigations regarding the fraudulent misappropriation of Angelic's assets by the company's former sole director and shareholder. The assets were repatriated using a variety of Insolvency Act applications following a successful application for interim injunctive relief.
