Fraud and Asset Tracing

Our fraud and asset tracing specialists draw on a wealth of experience from both onshore and offshore practice. We advise on the full range of fraud and asset tracing-related work from self-contained local proceedings through to the largest and most complex cross-border disputes.

We assist clients in securing and recovering assets offshore, as well as advising third parties such as banks and trustees who are often working in circumstances of extreme urgency with the added pressure of reputational and confidentiality considerations. We regularly work alongside colleagues on matters concerning trust and company law, insolvency and regulatory issues.

Members of our fraud and asset tracing team have been involved in some of the most significant fraud cases in our jurisdictions, as well as in several key decisions concerning economic torts, unjust enrichment and breaches of trust.
