Confiscation, Civil Recovery and Asset Forfeiture

Mark is a member of Carmelite’s civil fraud practice team. He has particular familiarity with criminal confiscation legislation and considerable experience in recovery proceedings. He regularly advises on restraint and forfeiture proceedings prior to and during the criminal trial process, including prior to charge.

He recently appeared in R v Box [2018] EWCA Crim 542 in the Court of Appeal in which the CA agreed that if cogent and credible evidence demonstrated that a confiscation order based on tainted gifts was impossible to meet, then it may be regarded as disproportionate.
