Restraint Orders & Receivership

Specialist Lawyers To Defend Restraint Orders

Restraint orders and receivership can involve confiscation of goods or property, cash seizure, civil recovery or property freezing orders. They are made under the Proceeds of Crime Act and will be attached to an investigation.

Restraint orders can be made and served with little or no warning, which is why we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to offer you expert advice and legal assistance when you need it most.

Our Advice On Restraint Orders And Receivership

There are many areas of confusion surrounding restraint orders and receivership. Some of the questions we can help you with include:

  • What are you legally required to provide?
  • Are you legally obliged to answer questions?
  • How will your family or business colleagues be affected?

Our expert team can help you if you have been arrested or charged with an offence, you are on police bail or you are under suspicion of committing an offence.

In all cases, you can be sure that our advice will be clear, comprehensive and practical. Our years of experience mean that we have the expertise to strengthen your position within the law, whatever the nature of your circumstances.

What Irwin Mitchell Can Do For You

We regularly apply, with success, for the amendment or discharge of restraint orders, helping you to access greater living allowances or release certain assets from restraint. The benefit of this is that you may continue to live as normal a life as possible throughout the investigation, minimising the impact of legal proceedings on your family, colleagues and friends. We can also advise your friends, family and colleagues if they are worried about how the order will affect them and want to know what their rights are.

As well as thorough advice, we also offer efficient and effective legal assistance and representation. We can help you prepare any documentation you may need as well as defending you as strongly as possible.

Independent guides to the legal profession, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, recognise us as one of the leading firms in this kind of work, so you can be confident that you have real experts on your side.

If necessary, we have the experience and knowledge to help you appeal against a restraint order at the Court of Appeal and/or Supreme Court.

How We Work

We will work closely with you at every stage of the process and keep you clearly informed of every new development as it occurs. Our team of legal experts is professional and approachable and will work tirelessly to protect your best interests at all times.

We appreciate that you may be worried about paying for legal advice, especially if your assets have been frozen or you cannot access your money. We usually work on a privately paying basis but in certain cases where clients cannot afford to pay, we may be able to advise you under a legal aid scheme. Contact us and we will talk you through all your funding options.
