Fraud & asset tracing

On occasion, potential fraud or other contentious matters further complicate insolvency proceedings.

In such cases, our insolvency practice provides clear guidance on the options open to liquidators, and sets out the financial parameters for each alternative. We can also advise where a liquidator wants to fight back when given a difficult ride by opposing litigants.

The firm’s outstanding reputation in wealth management and contentious trust issues means we are strongly placed to act for clients in situations where the contemplated litigation will pose a challenge to existing corporate or trust structures.

We also have extensive international connections, and have built up a bank of experience in the registration of UK judgements in other jurisdictions. As a consequence, much of our work has an international dimension.

Recent work 

  • Representing the defendant trustee in lawsuits seeking to set aside as fraudulent the transfer of assets to the trust.   The amount in controversy exceeds $3 billion.
  • We are representing the plaintiff  (the executor of an estate) in a lawsuit involving a claim against a debtor with whom the decedent did business.  The trial took place recently and we are awaiting the decision of the court.
