Gary Pons

I have used my experience in asset forfeiture and insolvency related criminal proceedings to move across into insolvency. I have experience in advising and representing client facing winding up petitions and claims in insolvency.

My approach

My approach is characterised by my efforts to obtains a complete understanding of my client's particular issues and needs. I am able to quickly grasp and analyse complex issues and explain them without complex legal jargon. I will assist my clients by providing precise advice in relation to their available options.

My work

Gary regularly acts in cases involving asset forfeiture and confiscation. He recently represented the interests of Sarah Tighe the wife of Tom Hayes in confiscation proceedings related to the Libor prosecutions. His experience in complex financial crime and asset forfeiture has allowed Gary to develop his practice over the years. He recently acted for the Claimant in the trial of the enforcement of a $2 million US Judgment in the High Court.

He frequently advises the victims of frauds in relation to both the civil and criminal remedies. He has advised on multi-jurisdictional asset recovery cases involving complex off-shore trusts.

Gary is ranked in Chambers and Partners (2017) as a leader in the field of criminal law at the London Bar.

About me

I have been a barrister for 22 years. I have been representing clients on a direct access basis for many years which has provided me with an insight about the issues and concerns that my clients face.

I will provide a fixed fee arrangement so that you know how much you will have to pay. Where the case allows I will divide that fee up into stages in order to provide you with greater flexibility.

What my clients say

"Mr. Pons was an outstanding selection to represent our case.  He was professional, sympathetic to our cause, quickly grasped the critical facts of our case, and clearly explained to us our legal strategy."

"I had been trying for over ten years to find someone to help me recover the debt with no success until I was referred to {Mr Pons]. I found [him] very professional, dedicated and understanding but above all [with a] belief in what [he was] achieving".
