Our Fraud/Asset Tracing team regularly advises on domestic and international disputes arising from commercial fraud, asset misappropriation and business crime. Much of the team’s work requires the management and coordination of proceedings and investigations in several jurisdictions. With a core team of experienced partners, assistants and support staff we deliver a hands on quality service to plaintiffs and defendants alike.
As a local independent dispute resolution practice, we are largely free of commercial conflict issues and have regularly worked with and have been instructed by leading international law firms. On the basis of these established relationships and through our membership of international fraud groups, we are able to create strong international project teams specialising in tracing, freezing and recovering stolen or misappropriated assets at very short notice.
In prosecution, we take immediate effective action to assist our clients in applying for orders freezing assets, preserving documents and facilitating the tracing of the proceeds of fraud. We also assist in and manage the ancillary issues that arise, such as internal investigations, PR reporting and liaising with forensic accountants and the appropriate regulatory authorities. We have well established working relationships with members of the SFC, ICAC, CCB and HKMA.
In acting for defendants our experience and knowledge of the complexities of fraud prosecution gives us an edge in fighting allegations of fraud or breaches of fiduciary duties. With your reputation and livelihood at stake we apply our extensive litigation experience in dealing with Anton Piller orders, Mareva injunctions and disclosure orders to afford you the opportunity and time to state your case.
