Investigations into personal and corporate misconduct
We have substantial experience in investigations involving personal and corporate misconduct in both the civil and criminal justice systems. Specialised in fraud-related disputes and investigations, we are able to move quickly across time zones to capture assets, and obtain fast and effective interim orders from the Court so that suspect’s assets can be frozen and evidence preserved in the first few hours of an enquiry. Our network of knowledgeable foreign lawyers in relevant jurisdictions including the Channel Islands the Caribbean and the former CIS countries are able to work on multi-jurisdictional disputes and the UK’s leading fraud-specialist Queen’s Counsel are ready to appear at short notice for our clients.
Our lawyers have been successfully involved in international fraud investigation and asset recovery litigation involving asset tracing in locations ranging from the UK, US and Europe to the Caribbean, India, the Middle East and Asia. Our lawyers regularly obtain Search, Evidence Preservation and Asset Freezing Orders against Defendants from a series of High Court Judges without notice and have recovered substantial sums from insurance underwriters in respect of previously disputed claims under policies. Our lawyers regularly appear before Criminal Courts on behalf of personal and corporate clients.
