Our team of forensics experts, investigators and recovery professionals have the necessary depth of expertise and experience, together with a proven track record of working with government, law enforcement and regulatory agencies in investigating, tracing and realising assets that result from the proceeds of crime.
We use our commercial judgement and skills to negotiate and realise assets both in the UK and overseas, turning them into cash. We have realised funds from residential properties, exotic chattels, businesses and other financial assets throughout the world. We have also achieved significant financial returns for clients from successfully concluding litigation in numerous jurisdictions.
We have been appointed as receivers by the Court in numerous cases under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, the Drug Trafficking Act 1994 and the Criminal Justice Act 1988. We have also worked closely with the Serious Fraud Office on criminal investigations.
