Seizure, restraint and confiscation of assets

The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 empowers prosecuting authorities to seize cash (regardless of any criminal investigation), to freeze assets and to confiscate wealth.  It is arguably the most draconian legislation available to the state.

Our specialist lawyers advise individuals and corporate bodies in relation to these proceedings both before and after investigation/trial where assets have been seized, restrained, frozen or confiscated  in the civil or criminal courts.

Confiscation proceedings can affect you even if you have not been convicted of an offence, they can damage the interests of third parties caught up in the proceedings by reason of their relationship with the person under investigation.

We can help you to challenge seizures, deal with applications for variation or discharge of restraining orders, if needs be to negotiate proper living expenses for you and your family, ultimately to defend your case and protect your assets.
