We specialise in defending clients at all stages of money laundering investigations. Under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, investigating authorities can apply to restrain the assets of a company or an individual if they believe they are the proceeds of criminality. This can happen at any stage of an investigation and is likely to cause huge disruption to the running of a business or an individual’s life. We have the experience and expertise to deal with these orders and have them either discharged or varied to enable you to continue with your business or day to day life.
If you are prosecuted, we will proactively defend your case, thoroughly reviewing and challenging all the evidence to rebut any prosecution inferences. We have access to some of the most respected barristers and experts with specialist knowledge in wide ranging business areas to assist in the most complex and lengthy cases.
