Commercial litigation advocate Andrew Langan-Newton has joined Keystone Law Isle of Man from Cains. He joins a team of four senior advocates, making it one of the fastest-growing litigation practices on the island.

Andrew specialises in commercial disputes and has extensive expertise in advising on alleged fraud, professional negligence, insolvency, and commercial debt recovery. He has a particular interest in trust and corporate disputes.

During his career, he has argued cases before the Isle of Man High Court and Appeal Court on behalf of a wide range of local and international clients.

Andrew also advises clients in relation to claims before the Isle of Man Employment and Equality Tribunal, providing data protection advice, and preparing non-contentious applications to the Isle of Man Court and to the Isle of Man Companies Registry.

Director Gillian Christian said: “Keystone’s litigation team is fast becoming one of the leading practices on the island and the addition of Andrew will only further cement our excellent reputation. His solid experience is the perfect fit for our team who are all highly skilled litigators and will strengthen our ability to provide practical advice to our clients on their complex litigation cases.”

Andrew added: “With the exemplary knowledge and expertise in the Keystone team, the award-winning working environment and support systems, and the worldwide network of Keystone offices, it was an obvious decision for me to join the firm to develop my career in the Isle of Man.”

Since its launch in the Isle of Man in 2016, Keystone’s litigation team has gone from strength to strength. In 2019, the team was joined by specialist litigator Andrew Marshall from Gough Law and continues to be recognised in the leading legal directory The Legal 500 for dispute resolution, which describes the team as having “excellent knowledge of the litigation system in the Isle of Man and how it can be deployed to best effect to benefit a client”.
