Scott Porter, an Associate Solicitor and part of Ellisons’ Lender Services team, recently won a jurisdiction challenge acting for a large Bank.

Proceedings were issued against the Bank in Northern Ireland and Scott worked closely with Chris Ross and his team at fellow Alliott Group firm, John McKee Solicitors in Belfast, to mount a jurisdiction challenge, arguing that the proceedings should not have been brought in Northern Ireland because England was the proper jurisdiction.

Jurisdiction challenges are always challenging but we are delighted that the team secured a win for the Bank and also obtained a costs Order in the Bank’s favour.

This is a great example of the results we can achieve in other jurisdictions working with local experts through our membership of the Alliott Group.
