An increasing reliance on remote electronic accounting and banking systems has contributed to an increase in the misappropriation of funds through identity theft and other schemes. Sophisticated criminals use more and more complex financial vehicles to conceal the location and source of misappropriated assets. Our Asset Tracing and Recovery experts will work with you and your legal adviser to attempt to recover misappropriated funds, quickly and discretely.
Our outstanding reputation in this area is based on a track record of success on a significant number of assignments over 20 years. This continues today with a much greater emphasis on electronic detection and analysis tools to reflect the underlying nature of much of the evidence as well as the increasing sophistication of misappropriation schemes.
Our asset tracing team are experienced in working with legal professionals to locate, identify and freeze stolen assets. They are also experts at tracing a transaction path from its origin through to destination.
Our asset recovery experts can help you to recover assets through civil remedies and act as court-appointed receivers to seize and manage recovered assets.
Much of our Asset Tracing and Recovery work is cross border, requiring a deep understanding of offshore jurisdictions. As one of the largest networks of Forensic practices in the world, we can call on international strength in Asset Tracing and Recovery, enabling us to safeguard stolen assets in offshore accounts before criminal elements are aware they are under scrutiny.
