Members of our team have substantial experience of resisting applications on behalf of individuals, companies, trusts, and other organisations, and in dealing with the recovery of assets both in the UK and overseas. We have particular experience in assisting clients in proceedings relating to SFO investigations.
As well as our experience of dealing with the recovery of assets and resisting applications under POCA, our team also have a unique insight into the strategy of prosecutors and regulatory bodies who make such applications, as a result of the experience gained by our barristers who acted for the authorities in these matters whilst at the independent Bar.
