Whilst our firm’s specialist criminal defence lawyers represent people being investigated for fraud, white collar crime, corruption and bribery, our civil litigation team acts for both individuals and businesses in the resolution of civil claims arising from similar circumstances.
We are often instructed to apply or respond to applications to the court to freeze assets or money allegedly acquired fraudulently.
It is possible to obtain an order in the civil court, without notice to the other party, to search a property and preserve evidence such as electronic data as well as an order to freeze bank accounts and other property. These situations are often very fluid and it is necessary to move quickly to preserve assets and evidence. We provide rapid and confidential advice on such matters.
