We focus on asset recovery, with a particular emphasis on the proceeds of commercial and criminal frauds, political grand corruption and fraudulent concealment of marital assets. Working collectively with other international law firms, as well as directly with individual, corporate and government fraud victims, we apply forward-thinking solutions to the profound problems raised by complex legal structures, sophisticated money laundering techniques, and the globalized nature of fraud and corruption. We have extensive experience in these areas representing governments and victims of fraud, as well as busting trusts and dragging corporate shell companies used to hide assets into insolvency for a maximized return of any stolen or hidden assets. We find assets, we seize them, we litigate and we win. Problem solved.
