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;
