Civil Fraud

A number of barristers at Mountford Chambers combine civil and criminal experience so as to offer effective representation in cases of civil fraud and asset recovery, including cases of account freezing, civil recovery and forfeiture. We are particularly experienced in handling cases which lie at the cross-over between criminal and civil fraud or where there are parallel criminal and civil proceedings.

We regularly act in substantial High Court litigation involving issues of fraud and we are instructed by some of the country’s leading litigation firms. Our work includes fraud cases arising from complex domestic and cross-jurisdictional disputes and litigation to recover losses in investment fraud. Our barristers are engaged in all relevant aspects of the process of commercial litigation including applications for injunctive relief, applications for disclosure, security for costs and the enforcement of foreign judgments.

We have handled a number of the most complex recent cases of civil recovery and bank account forfeiture arising from fraud investigations. We have well-established links with litigation firms in the Cayman Islands, the BVI and Bermuda and we are regularly asked to advise in relation to cases of cross-jurisdictional fraud which arise in these regions.

Our members cover these areas of practice:

  • Civil fraud litigation
  • Asset recovery through civil proceedings
  • Recovering losses from investment fraud
  • Claims for unjust enrichment
  • Business disputes involving allegations of fraud
  • Parallel criminal and civil fraud proceedings
  • Civil recovery
  • Bank account freezing
  • Civil forfeiture
  • Related issues of disclosure.
