We are pleased to announce two new partner appointments, expanding the firm’s litigation and gaming services and international offering.
Michael McCarthy joins the firm’s restructuring team from Kennedys. He brings his extensive experience on both contentious and non-contentious insolvency matters as well as restructuring, principally advising insolvency practitioners and financial institutions.
Since qualifying with Dibb Lupton (now DLA Piper) in 1989, Michael has gained over 25 years’ experience as a litigation partner across three City law firms. He is widely known as a leading adviser in insolvency cases, having spent several years working for the Insolvency Service of the DTI. His expertise will be invaluable in strengthening the team’s international dispute resolution services.
Andrew Tait joins the firm’s internationally recognised Betting and Gaming department from Mansion Group, where he has spent the last 10 years as Group General Counsel & Chief Compliance Offer at the private internet gaming company’s headquarters in Gibraltar.
Andrew has over 20 years’ of legal experience, specialising in intellectual property, compliance, contract negotiation and management covering online gaming, media, IT and telecommunications. After undertaking a post graduate diploma in International Anti-Money Laundering law, his knowledge and experience in this growing area adds to team’s growing international clientele.
