Civil Fraud Asset Recovery

Visit Carmelite Chambers Main Site

Our real expertise and knowledge of how frauds are structured and perpetrated is invaluable particularly where defending civil fraud claims. We recognise allegations of civil fraud and the ancillary injunctive relief sought by claimants require an agile and robust response at an early stage and we have wide experience in dealing with all aspects of High Court civil recovery litigation with particular emphasis on asset recovery and freezing orders. The breadth of our expertise allows us to provide a pro-active service underpinned by strategic and pragmatic advice.

Our Civil Fraud and Asset Recovery team is regularly instructed in cases involving:

  • A wide range of fraud related matters including corruption, investment fraud, bribery and money laundering.

  • Multi-party claims across international jurisdictions.

  • Civil injunctive relief including freezing orders, civil search & seizure orders  and “Norwich Pharmacal” third party disclosure orders. 

  • Significant overlap between civil and criminal proceedings.

  • Restraint and confiscation proceedings under Part 5 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

  • Companies affected by restraint proceedings brought in the criminal courts.

In addition with prosecuting authorities placing an ever-increasing burden upon companies to investigate internal wrongdoing and to self-report we can advise corporate clients where criminal activity by directors, employees or advisors is suspected within a business as to the proper approach and strategies to be adopted in investigating such activity and where necessary the appropriate co-operation strategies with regulators and prosecuting authorities.
