Civil fraud & asset tracing

Civil fraud & asset tracing overview

Our established team of silks and juniors has experience in all aspects of civil fraud: asset tracing and recovery, breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy, constructive trusts, dishonest assistance, deceit, false accounting and unjust enrichment.

We act for both the victims of fraud and defendants to fraud proceedings. Our instructions often have an international dimension.

Our members are experienced at working in fast-moving situations across multiple jurisdictions and are adept at pursuing and resisting applications for injunctive relief including freezing orders, delivery up orders, disclosure orders, search orders and Norwich Pharmacal orders. We also have expertise in international asset tracing and recovery, including advising in relation to disputes involving payments to and from offshore trusts.

Members often handle cases that intersect with other areas of commercial dispute resolution, including banking and financial services and employment law, as well as other areas of expertise such as insolvency and property law.  We also have a specialist clinical negligence/personal injury team who deal with fraudulent claims.
