Nature of practice and clients
Martin Kenney & Co. is a specialist, multi-jurisdictional investigative and litigation practice based in Road Town, Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. The firm's work lies at the intersection of cross-border insolvency, creditors' rights and complex commercial litigation. Leading a specialist team of lawyers, investigators and forensic accountants, Martin Kenney is widely regarded as a groundbreaker in the use of pre-emptive remedies, multidisciplinary teams and professional litigation funding in response to global economic crime to uproot bank secrets and freeze hidden assets in multiple jurisdictions.
