Ilona Groark is admitted as an attorney in the Cayman Islands and as a solicitor-advocate in England. She advises clients in complex, ultra-high value cross-border disputes typically with a Caribbean nexus and invariably in circumstances where there are allegations of fraud or misconduct and a need to safeguard or recover assets across multiple-jurisdictions.

Ms. Groark acts for and against large international corporations, institutional investors, general partners, investment managers, court-appointed officeholders, trustees and other financial professionals. She has extensive experience in obtaining time-sensitive freezing injunctions and deploying aggressive on- and offshore discovery strategies in support of domestic and foreign-proceedings. 

Before joining Kobre & Kim, Ms. Groark practiced at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP and Ogier, where her clients included the administrators of Nortel’s EMEA estate, the Royal Bank of Scotland and its former directors, and the Tajik State Unitary Enterprise, Tajik Aluminum Company.
