Forfeiture and recovery solicitors
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 gives investigators wide powers in relation to cash and bank accounts which can be searched for, seized and detained if the authority has reasonable grounds to suspect it is intended to be used unlawfully or derives from criminal activity.
To obtain the return of the cash or account it must be proven that it was not secured illegally and is not going to be used illegally. We work with our clients to produce an audit trail to facilitate cash recovery and advise and represent them throughout the whole process. Various fee structures can be agreed.
Ben Henry heads up the Forfeiture and Recovery Department.
