Commercial Fraud & Asset Tracing

Overview

Our Fraud Team exists to provide advice and representation in cases in which allegations of fraudulent conduct are made.

The team draws upon the specialist knowledge and experience that its members have built up throughout the vast range of work in which such allegations are made. Its core work involves breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty, restitution, misrepresentation and transactions entered into at an undervalue to put assets beyond the reach of creditors. Its members are regularly involved in cases in which interim remedies are sought, often on an urgent basis.

The team’s membership is characterised by their breadth of experience. Its quality is reflected in the endorsements its members have obtained in legal directories and the reputation that their work has earned for them throughout the Midlands and further afield.

The team aims to be of service whether the demands of a particular piece of work call for the instruction of leading counsel with vast experience in the field or an up and coming junior practitioner with an affinity and interest in this field of work.

Please get in touch with our dedicated business and property clerking team with any questions regarding our service and expertise.
