Civil Asset Recovery Proceedings | Fraud Investigations | Irwin Mitchell

Fraud is often carried out on a global scale. That means court cases and investigations often take place in more than one country. If you’re being investigated and there is a risk that you will be subject to civil asset recovery proceedings, you should seek expert help as soon as possible.

Our legal team have a full understanding of all of the complexities involved in fraud investigations, including how the global markets and financial systems work. We can provide you with all the support you need to protect your interests at home and abroad.

Civil Asset Recovery

When prosecutors take civil asset recovery proceedings in the High Court, they will be asking for an order to take back property or money that they believe has been obtained illegally.

In this situation it is important that you get legal advice from experienced lawyers. Our experts cover a range of related areas and also have in-depth understanding of the complex offshore banking structures used to hide the proceeds of fraud and criminal activity.

We have a team of dedicated, experienced solicitors who have a great deal of experience in handling civil asset recovery proceedings and have in-depth knowledge of the difficult legal issues involved. We have worked on some of the most high-profile fraud cases such as those involving Enron and the Versailles Group.

We know the sorts of issues that you and your loved ones might be facing and we can provide you with all the support you need to protect your interests at home and abroad.

We can advise on:

  • Interim relief (before final orders are made) such as freezing or search-and-seize orders
  • Using English evidence in overseas courts
  • Asset tracing
  • Cases involving trusts and other offshore structures

We work closely with lawyers in other countries, investigators, forensic accountants and receivers or insolvency practitioners to give our clients the best possible service and support. We also have specialist solicitors in our business and regulatory crime department who can work with you and our civil asset recovery solicitors if criminal advice is needed too.
