Our civil fraud team has substantial experience in high-profile and high-value fraud cases. Our expertise in civil fraud claims is augmented by our cross-disciplinary expertise in other related areas, such as international, company, commercial and insolvency, which ensures our clients receive a first-class all-round service.
Whether pursuing or defending civil fraud claims, Chambers is regularly involved in all stages of advice and representation, from the preparatory steps of obtaining urgent freezing injunctions and search and seizure orders, through to trial and subsequent enforcement, often dealing with cross-jurisdictional issues.
We have experience of every type of civil fraud claim, including accessory liability, asset recovery, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of trust, conspiracy, deceit, restitution and tracing, both at the corporate and individual level.
In particular, our insolvency specialists have extensive experience acting for the benefit of creditors, especially HMRC, and liquidators in pursuing directors and shadow directors for misappropriation of company funds and assets, especially for the purpose of fraudulent tax evasion.
