Kanika’s main area of expertise is contentious insolvency (both corporate and personal), often involving aspects of fraud, cross border asset recovery and investigations.

Her client base is primarily focused on the insolvency market (including insolvency practitioners, lawyers, funders and insurers) but she also advises directors both on their duties and in defending claims as well as individual creditors on their enforcement options. She is a trusted adviser for many of her clients and, as a result, is often called upon at short notice to deal with issues that are technically complicated where clients are keen to find a speedy resolution.

Kanika is heavily involved in the firm’s India practice and co-leads TLT’s India Group. She has a specific focus on matters relating to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 (in India) and work flowing from that, both here in the UK and abroad. Her reputation in this field continues to grow and she is regularly invited to speak to regulatory authorities (such as the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India) as well as more generally at conferences.

Kanika has been recognised as a recommended professional for restructuring and insolvency in the corporate restructuring and insolvency space in the Legal 500 directories and as a next generation partner in relation to Emerging Markets.
