Marcus’ practice covers three main areas: contentious regulatory; insolvency; and financial services litigation.
His experience includes acting for regulated entities involved in actual or threatened proceedings, including regulatory matters and investigations. He is regarded as the lawyer of choice for the majority of the island's larger banking groups on regulatory issues.
In the insolvency arena, Marcus' reputation as a leading practitioner has been established on the back of a series of successful, innovative applications which have expanded the reach of Jersey's insolvency laws. In particular he is renowned for his ability to persuade the court to exercise its discretion to permit novel processes to be adopted as part of Jersey law so as best to serve the needs of his clients. Marcus leads the eGaming team in Jersey and has been advising clients since the inception of the eGaming industry. The final significant area of Marcus' work is his financial services civil litigation practice.
