Fraud and asset recovery


Modern day fraud can occur in any business or organisation. It is often fast moving and borderless. Our experienced team recognises that action needs to be taken quickly, and knowledge of local and international remedies is essential.

We are one of only a few firms who have the combined experience in fraud prevention, detection and international fraud recovery claims. We have advised on some of the world’s largest fraud cases leading all the way to the highest appeal courts where billions of pounds are at stake and claims arise in multiple jurisdictions.

We represent numerous banks, insurers, national and global businesses, the NHS and many other public sector bodies, as well as domestic and foreign insolvency practitioners. Our tried and tested strategies have helped clients avoid claims, identify fraud and recover millions of pounds worldwide. We tailor our approach, using a combination of civil and criminal prosecution powers to maximise recoveries.

Our team operates from across our five office network in the UK and draws on the experience of other trusted specialists worldwide. We can help you with:
  • fraud prevention and detection training;
  • obtaining and responding to freezing orders and search and seizure orders; 
  • obtaining and responding to disclosure orders and foreign letters of request; 
  • conducting internal investigations; and
  • domestic and international litigation.
