Welcome to a New Guest Blogger! - Mr Jeremy Marshall, partner and head of commercial litigation at Irwin Mitchell, London

Hot on the heels of Mr Bill Holohan, our new Irish solicitor guest blogger, we are now joined by Mr Jeremy Marshall (pictured) a partner at Irwin Mitchell solicitors, London.

This is a very exciting development as Jeremy is well placed to offer a practitioner's critical eye view of insolvency law practice and policy. Jeremy is the head of the Commercial Litigation department in London. He has worked in a number of leading litigation firms in London, New York and the Cayman Islands. Jeremy specialises in civil litigation arising out of financial or corporate disputes with an emphasis on corporate fraud, insolvency and shareholder redress. He also advises in relation to professional negligence actions as a result of the recent credit crunch as well as claims alleging breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract against third party professionals.

Jeremy is a solicitor advocate and is also admitted to the Bar of the Cayman Islands. Jeremy has written on a number of areas, including fraud. Here is the citation to that work:

International Commercial Fraud. Sweet & Maxwell, London, 2001.

We are very fortunate that Jeremy has come on board, especially with his very busy schedule at Irwin Mitchell. His blog posts will focus on insolvency issues from a practical perspective. Welcome Jeremy!

With Jeremy joining the team this brings our guest blogging cadre up to a respectable four (Professor David Graham QC, Professor Emily Kadens, Mr Bill Holohan and Mr Jeremy Marshall). We are not quite yet at the level of CreditSlips, but it is hoped that our varying perspectives (academic, solicitor based practical insight, and historic) will provide a wide ranging critical insight into developments in our area. There is one current grave lacuna, or perhaps two. An insolvency practitioner (IP) and an Insolvency Service employee would make us fully representative. I am working on this as we speak.
