We are delighted to announce the appointment of expert commercial litigator Nicola McKinney as a partner.
Nicola’s areas of expertise include complex commercial and cross-jurisdictional disputes, fraud and breach of trust claims, and worldwide freezing orders and other forms of interim relief.
Nicola began her career as a defence advocate and has represented clients in the Crown Courts, Chancery and Commercial Courts, Employment Appeals Tribunal, and the Privy Council. She draws on an extensive multi-disciplinary background when working on the most complex cases, where there are often simultaneous criminal and civil disputes, coordinated legal and media attacks, and multiple proceedings ongoing in several jurisdictions. Nicola has acted for and against foreign governments and government institutions, and in cases regularly involving reputational and political sensitivities. She is also called to the Bar in The Bahamas and has advised in relation to Bahamian Law.
“I am delighted to be joining Quillon Law. Quillon’s reputation in commercial disputes is already excellent and I am looking forward to be joining them as a partner and working closely with my new colleagues. I am excited at the prospect of building on Quillon’s strong position in the sector as the firm continues to grow further in its second year.”
Commenting on Nicola’s appointment, partner Mark Hastings said:
