Commercial Fraud

Individuals and businesses are increasingly falling victim to fraud. Fraudsters are becoming more sophisticated and harder to detect. Our fraud specialists provide rapid, cost-effective action to investigate suspected frauds, and to discover and recover our clients' assets.

Notable highlights

  • We investigated a multinational trade fraud, obtained a worldwide freezing order for US$100 million in the English Courts in support of proceedings in Italy, and coordinated enforcement of that order in Luxembourg and the US.
  • We acted to successfully protect a UK-listed company where allegations of fraud against a director led to a large claim from a foreign bank.
  • We acted for a well-known travel company to recover all losses it suffered as a result of a £5 million fraud by its former Company Secretary.
  • We represented an African oil trading company in US$50 million fraud proceedings, successfully discharging injunctions in England, Mauritius and South Africa and enforcing cross-undertakings for damages.
  • We advised a US company on claims arising out of the purchase of a business via a German intermediary relating to the misappropriation of funds from an account in Liechtenstein.
  • We acted for a high-net-worth individual to recover €15 million stolen from a Cayman Islands account by obtaining a worldwide freezing order in the English Courts and tracing assets in the UK, Italy, Luxembourg and Austria.
