Money Laundering / Proceeds of Crime

The legislation in respect of the above have become a field of great importance in recent years. The consequences of falling foul of the anti-money laundering regulations can be very serious and devastating for individuals and corporations. Therefore considered, timely and accurate expert advice is essential. Our Defence team advises both corporate clients and individuals on all legal issues concerning money laundering, including the offences created by way of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. In particular, we are able to advise in respect of the reporting of suspicion provisions and assist in relation to the civil recovery powers which are used by the CPS, anti-fraud and other Government agencies.

We regularly deal with complex, large and difficult confiscation proceedings in the criminal courts under the Proceeds of Crime Act and the previous statutory regimes. The firm is experienced in asset tracing, restraint orders, the appointment of Receivers under the Proceeds of Crime Act, third party rights and directors’ disqualification proceedings. We are also happy to appear for interested parties in receivership proceedings and have particular expertise in forfeiture/cash seizure hearings. We are frequently instructed in defendant High Court restraint work and have in depth experience of lifting restraint or receivership orders from assets of defendants or third parties to criminal proceedings.
