London, England (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Kobre & Kim LLP Partners Michael Kim and Tim Prudhoe were invited to present at this years’ International Trust and Estates Litigation Conference in London, England, on Monday September 30th.
Mr. Kim presented on “International Tracing & Recovery of Stolen Trust & Estate Assets.” He shared his insights into common problems in international recovery of assets looted from trusts & estates and how to use cross-border insolvency laws in situations involving contested assets.

He is co-author of the book Debtor-Creditor Fraud and has served as an expert witness in the courts of the Cayman Islands, England, Switzerland, and Italy.
Mr. Prudhoe joined a panel discussion on “Attacks on Wealth and Protecting Trustees.” His particular focus was methodologies of lateral attack, such as taking over reserved powers of settlors using the insolvency and receivership route. He offered his perspective on the particular nuances and complexities involved when these types of matters include both onshore and offshore issues. He also dealt with the issues of costs exposure and minimization strategies.
Mr. Prudhoe is an English barrister with extensive experience in relation to offshore financial centers. His practice has a particular focus on trusts and other fiduciary disputes and he has given expert evidence on related issues in Texas, New York and Singapore.
Both Messrs. Kim and Prudhoe are members of Kobre & Kim LLP’s International Judgment Enforcement and Offshore Asset Recovery Team which has been featured on the cover of The Wall Street Journal and recognized repeatedly in legal industry publications as one of the most highly regarded judgment enforcement/asset recovery firms in the world.
