The firm has obtained many effective and creative orders for the swift identification and restraint of assets to enable the satisfaction of overseas claims. This includes worldwide freezing orders and, where appropriate, the use of gagging orders.
Asset Recovery Actions
The firm has acted in major asset recovery actions in Jersey, resulting, for example, in the recovery of millions of dollars of the proceeds of corruption for the state of Brazil subject to a constructive trust.
