White Collar Crime & Regulatory

Civil Recovery & Asset Freezing


Civil Recovery and Asset Freezing are crucial legal tools used in the fight against financial crime.

Under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA), these proceedings play a vital role in confiscating or recovering proceeds from crime, especially from unconvicted defendants through civil courts.

Unlike criminal proceedings, these do not require a jury and operate on the ‘balance of probabilities’ standard.
