Our reputation is built on our understanding of client’s interests, be it the need for urgent access to business or living expenses, the future of family assets or the protection of individual or corporate reputations.

Confiscation Orders

We have experienced solicitors who specialise in representing clients in confiscation proceedings. Our team of solicitors would work tirelessly to ensure that the final order is proportional to the actual wrongdoing.

 

Confiscation orders are issued after an individual has been convicted of an offence that resulted in their financial gain. The purpose of such an order is to prevent the defendant from benefiting from the proceeds of their crime.

 

The Court will make an order on the amount of benefit received from the relevant criminal conduct and the defendant’s available assets. Since the court determines the amount of benefit received from the crime and the defendant’s available assets, allegations of ‘criminal lifestyle’ and ‘hidden assets’ may be made. It is important to have a legal team that has the experience to negotiate and deal with confiscation orders efficiently.

Restraint orders

Restraint orders are often applied to assets which might be subject to a confiscation order after a conviction. Our specialist solicitors can assist in dealing with assets that have been legitimately obtained. We can also assist with living expenses and vary restraint orders. We are renowned for our excellence in dealing with matters of proceeds of crime.
