We are trusted by governments, businesses and directors to act quickly, confidentially and effectively in carrying out investigations, and pursuing and defending fraud claims.
We have substantial expertise in obtaining and resisting emergency injunctions to freeze assets, and search for and recover evidence. This extends to controlling defendants and third parties through pre-emptive remedies such as orders for the surrender of passports, gagging orders, delivery up orders, and insolvency-related relief.
Our experience includes:
- coordinating multi-jurisdictional teams investigating fraud and corruption across jurisdictions. We do this through our strategic alliances with handpicked advisers around the world
- liaising with and responding to authorities including the SFO, FCA, FRC, and overseas agencies such as the Swiss and US Departments of Justice
- devising and implementing recovery strategies
- enforcing judgments worldwide
