Civil Fraud

hbdev

Fraud is a complex area of law and can be damaging for individuals and businesses. We can help you to bring civil fraud action, which can be used to seek recovery of any financial losses brought by the fraud.

We have a deep knowledge of fraud litigation and have onboard a number of solicitors who are experts in this field. We have brought and defended complex civil fraud claims on behalf of companies and high-net worth individuals. Civil fraud claims can include misrepresentation, deceit, abuse of power, dishonest assistance, non-disclosure and concealment.

Our approach to civil fraud matters is strategic and pragmatic. We are able to offer expert advice at all stages of a dispute. We are well connected to forensic experts in tracing and recovering misappropriated funds, meaning that they will be available to readily assist on your case. We are able to advise clients on taking pre-emptive steps to prevent assets being dissipated. We are also able to provide advice, post-judgment, to secure enforcement for our clients.

There are a number of interim reliefs that can be used to recover any potential losses. We regularly seek or resist a number of interim remedies available to litigants, including (but not limited to):

  • Mareva injunctions (Worldwide Freezing Orders);
  • Search orders and Anton Piller relief;
  • Disclosure orders; and
  • Norwich Pharmacal and third party disclosure orders.

In the news: We successfully acted for a minority shareholder in the high profile case against Gate Ventures PLC.
